Medical Device and IVD Registration in China
Medical devices are regulated by the NMPA，which is under State Administration for Market Regulation. Manufacturers must register their devices with the NMPA before selling or distributing in China. The NMPA reviews all device applications and has strict requirements for submission documentation, testing and clinical data.
Your device classification determines the documentation required for your NMPA submission. Classification is based on CFDA regulation and the NMPA classification database. Device classification and their registration requirements are as follows:
Class I –registration dossier – self testing reports
Class II –full registration dossier and technical review
Class III– full registration dossier and technical review and clinical data
Manufacturers must submit a technical dossier that includes detailed technical information, clinical data and quality documentation. China requires in-country testing for all Class II and III devices, although the NMPA may accept some of your existing testing reports. Testing requirements vary depending on your device type.
