CFDA updated Medical Device GMP

In September 2015, the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) issued their updated Medical Device GMP. GMP stands for “Good Manufacturing Practices” and is a quality assurance system on the use of Medical Devices.


 More over GMP 

This quality system includes requirements related to the methods used in, and around facilities and controls used for, designing, manufactering, packaging, labeling, storing, installing and servicing of medical devices intended for human use. Therefor the quality can be gauranteed only when the production proces from beginning til end is entirely carried out at a precise prescribed and controlled manner. This way of production is called Good Manufacering Practises and gives manufacturers of medical devices greater flexibility in achieving  quality requirements.



From February 1, 2016 this update will go into effect and as a consequence bring China-based sites closer into allignment with global standards. It is very important that the manufactering sites are in compliance with the regulations to ensure no disruption to the supply chain.
