New User Fees Set for Foreign Medical Device Manufacturers in China

Chinese medical device market regulator China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has published a draft table of user fees for medical device registrants, and is expected to begin enforcing fee requirements in March 2015.

CFDA registration fees will not be insubstantial: Imported Class II device registrants will be charged about $34,000 for initial registration, while foreign Class III device registrants will have to pay about $49,000 for initial registration. Registration renewals every five years for imported devices will cost registrants $6,500 per renewal. User fees will be charged in addition to in-country testing, clinical trials, authorized representation and translation costs.

A translation of the draft fee table below does not include any potential fees for Class I CFDA record filing or CFDA quality system audits.
