This webinar recording gives key updates concerning the China medical device market including regulatory requirements, registration and UDI timelines by class. We answer questions concerning medical device registration scenarios, data elements and requirements. The speakers review and provide clarity on currently posted guidance and answer questions concerning China NMPA.

To keep up with international standards and help device manufacturers prepare for regulatory compliance, China’s National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) issued a number of regulations related to unique device identifiers (UDIs) and launched its new UDI database portal. The first group of medical devices, which includes high-risk implantable devices, is now mandated to submit UDI data to the database.

In this webinar, you will get an overview of key UDI-related regulations, lessons learned from the first batch pilot, and guidance on how to comply with requirements. Our experts explain how they work in practice for UDI submission to NMPA and what to expect going forward.
