Since the Chinese Medical Device Regulation overhaul in 2014, the market has witnessed countless updates in its regulatory rules, technical guidance, and standards. And the recent governmental reorganization where the formal regulatory body, CFDA (China Food & Drug Administration), is integrated into the new CNDA (China National Drug Administration), seems to herald more changes into the current regulatory framework.

New requirements on clinical evidence, China Agent, overseas inspections etc. bring forth both opportunities and challenges for the foreign medical device manufacturers.
