As the world’s best pharmaceutical manufacturing powerhouse, China offers a good deal of business opportunities for pharma manufacturers. Not only the Chinese pharmaceuticals have seen a rise in FDA approvals for generic medication, but also the market seems ambitious with a focus on innovation and homegrown research and development. To enter the Chinese pharmaceutical market, one needs to obtain approvals from the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) (formerly known as China Food and Drug Administration [CFDA]), the agency which regulates food, drugs, and medical devices in the region. Medicinal products in China are classified into:

  • Chemical Drugs (small molecules)
    • Total 6 classes
    • 2 classes related to NCE (marketed outside China, not marketed globally)
  • Biological Products (15 classes)
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (9 classes)
