The medtech industry is one of the key industries in China, where the market demands for high value medical devices have been increasing.  The government constantly adjust the regulatory requirements and process to encourage local R&D and manufacturing so as to reduce the country’s dependence heavily on imported high value medical equipment and products. Multinational companies have been adopting new regulatory strategies and exploring new business models in response to this policy and the evolving healthcare reform in China. In the meantime, they are constantly challenged by the regulatory constraints, policy changes and government enforcements in different subject areas.

This course will cover CMDE/CFDA's perspective on regulatory requirements and process for different types of submissions (initial application, registration change and renewal), as well as post market compliance. In this program, industry experts will provide an in-depth guide to how you as an organization can secure regulatory approval in the China market.

Closely paralleling the topics covered during AdvaMed's upcoming 510(k) and PMA Submission Strategy Workshops, the China Workshop 2019 will include a lot of development and updates based on the topics of the workshop 2018.  You will walk away with actionable insights and strategies for assembling and streamlining your submissions for the largest emerging market in the world.
