Due to the impact of Covid-19, the NMPA (National Medical Products Administration) announced (No.106-2020) new arrangements for the UDI database:
- The pilot phase of the UDI database will extend until December 31, 2020.
- The NMPA issued an updated version of the first batch of medical devices requiring UDI.
- Existing and new registrants, with products listed in the first batch of medical devices, will be required to submit the product identification (DI) from January 1, 2021 onwards instead of from October 1, 2020.
