Sino-US trade deal: US device firms want more info on data-sharing
This article was originally published in Clinica
The US medical device industry is asking the government for more detail on how the US and China will share information about medical devices and the companies that manufacture them under the agreement the two governments signed this week. On December 10, the US government signed a broad agreement with China that aims to improve the safety of Chinese imports, including food, drugs, and medical devices, among others. The move is part of President Bush's efforts to provide reassurance that Chinese-imported products are safe, despite a recent spate of consumer goods imported from China that have been tainted with toxins. These incidents have garnered extensive media coverage.
