Chinese import law postponed

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

China's government indefinitely postpones implementation of regulations that U.S. manufacturers say would otherwise delay device imports into China. Decree 95, or Administrative Measures on Examination and Supervision of Imported Medical Devices, was originally scheduled to take effect Dec. 1 (1"The Gray Sheet" Nov. 5, 2007, p. 3). Though China's Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine (AQSIQ) states that the implementation deadline will be "subsequently announced," an AdvaMed spokesperson says that "this type of indefinite suspension generally means Decree 95 is dead, unless AQSIQ re-initiates the rulemaking process at some future date.
