China's regulatory framework for in-vitro diagnostic reagents is undergoing earthshaking changes. The country's new leaders have recognized that the regulations for supervision and administration of in-vitro diagnostic reagents are far from perfect along with rapid population growth and thriving economy over the past 30 years. Chinese state council issued the latest “Regulations for the Supervision and Administration of Medical Devices” on February 12, 2014, and it has come into force as June 1, 2014. Before long, China Food and Drug Administration issued a series of the latest regulations on in-vitro diagnostic reagents on July 30, 2014 respectively, and they will come into force as October 1, 2014. The overseas in-vitro diagnostic reagents exporting into China market will be subject to administration of overall new regulations on in-vitro diagnostic reagent registration since October 1, 2014.

China is one of the fastest growing global economies with a fifth population in the world, and is one of the largest healthcare markets around the world. Along with sustained economic and population growth as well as an ageing population, Chinese healthcare market has maintained annually average growth rate above 16 % since 1990s. Among them, in-vitro diagnostic reagents represented dynamical growth since 2007. By 2013, total value of in-vitro diagnostic reagents on Chinese healthcare market has reached 3.5 billion US dollars, an increase of 22.9% over 2012 level. It is estimated that Chinese in-vitro diagnostic reagent market is likely to be more than 5.5 billion US dollars until 2015, and it is one of segment market of the most growth potentiality. The Chinese in-vitro diagnostic reagent market is attracting more and more in-vitro diagnostic reagents produced by overseas and multinational manufacturers to penetrate such market.

However, China's radical change of regulatory framework for in-vitro diagnostic reagents will bring overseas and multinational in-vitro diagnostic reagent manufacturers the maximum challenges and opportunities. How do you in compliance with the latest Chinese regulations on in-vitro diagnostic reagents How do you operate business smoothly in China To enter such a lucrative in-vitro diagnostic reagent market, overseas and multinational in-vitro diagnostic reagent manufacturers must have a comprehensive and thorough knowledge of the latest Chinese regulations on in-vitro diagnostic reagent registration. Otherwise, the restrictive legal requirements and approval delays eat up your time and energy to achieve a successful entry into such a lucrative in-vitro diagnostic reagent market, and cause trouble for your business smoothly in China.
