In order to provide you a level of certainty in planning in the face of the COVID-19 situation, this event is now being delivered online as an online workshop. We are working with our instructors to ensure that the same learning objectives and quality of the education will be delivered regardless of this modification. RAPS is closely monitoring developments in the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. See our public safety page for the latest updates.

China has become the second-largest economy in the world and one of the most important markets for international businesses. As a regulatory professional, it is imperative to have a sufficient understanding of China’s NMPA regulations, processes, and expertise to navigate the NMPA system.

This workshop is structured to provide attendees with the fundamental knowledge about the NMPA regulations, its processes, and requirements. Led by instructors who are veteran regulatory managers, this course will also include not only their personal experiences but also up-to-date information and current practices. Where applicable, the instructors will illustrate the similarities and differences between the Chinese requirements and US/EU requirements. This course will be a combination of lectures, case studies, and in-class discussions.
