China -  Chinese law firm

Has the Chinese government taken any effective measures to make it easier for foreign companies to access China's market for healthcare products after China's ascension to the WTO?

China's rapidly changing regulatory environment will likely have a short-term negative impact on the overall market. A new regulatory system, established by the SDA in 2001, was designed to streamline a confusing regulatory framework. AQSIQ also introduced a new certification system in 2002 for certain medical equipment. It is a step towards resolving national treatment and transparency issues, though expensive, time-consuming, and redundant testing requirements remain. It is unclear if or when this regulatory and certification system will be revised.
