Enter the Chinese Market with CDE Meeting Interpretation

The NMPA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDE) regulates the entry of over-the-counter and prescription drugs into China’s pharmaceutical market, including biological therapeutics and generic drugs already approved by other regulatory bodies, such as the U.S.’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Pre-application Investigational New Drug (IND)/New Drug Application (NDA) meetings with the CDE can help establish a relationship between life science companies and the regulatory agency before approval. CSOFT Health Sciences’ expertise in interpreting and medical translation can ensure accurate and timely multilingual communication for every CDE meeting.

Benefits of pre-IND/NDA meetings with the CDE

INDs and NDAs are notoriously a timely and costly process. Scheduling an advance meeting can help:

  • Prioritize your application for regulatory approval
  • Provide in-depth, contextual understanding of the CDE’s requirements
  • Ensure the regulatory agency has ample time to prepare resources for the upcoming submission

While CDE pre-IND/NDA meetings are not necessarily required, they can help save time, money, and energy in the regulatory approval process. To ensure an effective meeting, CSOFT Health Sciences’ high-quality and accurate translation is essential for clear communication and understanding between both parties.
