11/9/2017 Seminar on Re- Manufacturing of Medical Imaging Equipment in Beijing

Sponsored by the COCIR, the seminar was held to facilitate communication between Chinese and Foreign medical device stakeholders in Tsinghua University on September 8, 2017. Representatives of MIIT, MEP, Remanufacturing Technology National Key Laboratory, EU delegation, SESEC, FDA China office, Basel convention Asia-pacific center, China Association for Medical Devices Industry, as well as China’s medical equipment enterprises attended the meeting. The guests respectively made presentations on the Basel convention, The Development of Chinese re-manufacturing standards and industry, COCIR vision and experience on circular economy/material efficiency, US FDA regulatory requirements on remanufacturing, etc.
At present, China’s remanufacturing focuses mainly on automobiles, engineering machinery, machine tools and other industries, and the regulations and standards in the field of remanufacturing are still to be further developed. In the field of medical devices, remanufacturing regulations have yet to be further opened, and standards remain to be developed. The experience of Europe and US in this field will be a useful reference for China’s industrial construction. The meeting provided a good platform for both parties to have a better understanding of each other, and will also promote the development of China’s remanufacturing industry.
