Regulatory Changes in China
According to China’s FDA (CFDA), the State Council issued two five-year plans on food and drug safety earlier this year that will impact analytical instrument manufacturers. According to the plan, 97% of agricultural products are required to meet quality standards by 2020. The plan on drug safety states that pharmaceutical drug quality is to be improved, calling for the approval of 289 generic drugs, as well as the reform of 3,050 national drug standards and 500 medical equipment standards by 2020. Read on to find out how these changes will impact instrument makers and more.  Discuss
