China Insight - Lifesciences


Non-Chinese companies seem to have new opportunities to acquire Chinese generic pharmaceutical manufacturers through transfer of technology thanks to GMP reform.

Recently, the State Food and Drug Administration (“SFDA”) issued two circulars (the “Circulars”) concerning the implementation of GMP standards:

– “Circular concerning promotion of implementation of new GMP and upgrade of pharmaceutical industry” (Guoshiyaojianan No.[2012]376) promulgated on 21 December 2012; and

– “Circular concerning technology transfer during the implementation of new GMP”) (Guoshiyaojianzhu No.[2013]38) promulgated on 22 February 2013.
