2019 NMPA (CFDA) Key Updates & Trends: Look Ahead to 2020 Webinar

January 15, 2020

Hundreds of new NMPA regulatory policies, guidelines, standards and announcements were released in 2019. These updates and changes impact the complete product life cycle from new submissions to renewals, as well as postmarket surveillance. For the first time in China, the piloted MAH system allows the separation of the manufacturing entity from the product design entity for domestically made devices. This webinar will teach attendees how manufacturers or inventors can shorten their time to market for new submissions, allow enough lead time for renewal and when to file for modifications to avoid penalties.

The session will provide an overview of the key NMPA changes and their implications on manufacturers. Topics include:

  • Standards & Guidelines
  • Clinical Pathways: Overseas Clinical Data Acceptance & Piloted Real World Data
  • MAH, UDI & eRPS
  • SaMD & AI
  • QMS (AE, Recall & Overseas Inspection)
