The Chinese government's establishment of a single drug regulatory authority in 2003 (The State Food and Drug Administration) was an important step toward foreign access, because it eliminated the conflicting standards that prevailed among provincial government agencies, centralized the Chinese healthcare regulatory system, and made it more transparent to industry partners. The SFDA now oversees all medications. Other former functions of the ministry have been assigned to different government bodies. The most important of these was the transfer of medical insurance responsibilities to the new Ministry of Labor and Social Security. The Ministry of Health retains its other main functions: regulatory development and oversight, healthcare resource allocation, and medical research and education.
Along with it in 2010, China has amended GMP, GLP, GCP, GSP and other regulations, China's aim is to further align the country with international standards of practice. For manufacturers and distributors and importers of drugs and medical devices in China, it is imperative to pay close attention to the pace at which SFDA implements these changes. They have to make changes accordingly to their standard operating procedures so that they can ensure compliance quickly and effectively with the evolving regime.
