Learn to navigate China’s regulatory, cultural and economic landscape for pharmaceuticals to improve the efficiency of your regulatory processes

Course Overview

Develop or market your drug in China more effectively with a deep understanding of the Chinese pharmaceutical regulatory landscape. In 2015 China’s pharmaceutical sector underwent significant regulatory reforms to align with EMA & FDA requirements, making the Chinese market one of the biggest pharmaceutical markets in the world. The reforms included clinical trial approval time being cut from 2 years to 60 days and the NMPA becoming a member of ICH.

During this course, you will learn fundamental Chinese regulatory requirements for pharmaceuticals and how they relate to the country’s economic and cultural background. Guided by our expert course leader you will discover best practices for registering new drugs and discuss the likely impact of the US – China Trade War on market access and drug development.
