China’s medical technology market is expected to become the second largest in the world in the next five to seven years. China represents numerous opportunities for European companies but understanding the practicalities of accessing the market is not simple. 
In this context, the EU SME Centre and the China-Britain Business Council will host a joint webinar to update you on the latest changes in China’s medical device regulations and a wider picture of Health China 2020. It will explain the changes in the product registration process, clinical trials for advanced medical devices and alternative solutions for class I and/or II devices to access the market. 
This webinar will also serve as a pre-departure briefing for companies that plan to attend this year’s China Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF) in Shanghai in May, the largest exhibition of medical technology in the Asia-Pacific region. 
In this webinar, you will learn about: 
  • The current Chinese healthcare reform and hospital provision system; 
  • The regulatory structure of China’s medical devices market; 
  • The latest changes by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) in the product registration process, procedure of clinical trials, and potential impact on SMEs; 
  • Possible alternative solutions for class I and/or II devices to access the market; 
  • Opportunities and challenges for EU SMEs in R&D collaboration and the wearable devices market for a mega health initiative in China.
