On April 25, 2020, the Chinese government announced a process through which it will permit the export of five categories of devices without NMPA approval. The five categories of devices are:

  1. COVID-19 test kits
  2. medical masks
  3. medical-use protective clothing (i.e., gowns)
  4. ventilators, and:
  5. infrared thermometers

AdvaMed member companies who manufacture these types of products in China AND whose products have the required overseas approval (i.e., an FDA Emergency Use Authorization) should complete the Export Declaration of Medical Supplies (“Export Declaration”) and provide it to their local MOFCOM office as soon as possible.
