    Healthcare Equipment Working Group / Forum


The Healthcare Equipment Working Group consists of more than 100 European Chamber member companies that develop and manufacture indispensable, lifesaving and diseasereducing diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. Members of this working group invest in research, development and production facilities as well as the education of Chinese doctors and healthcare professionals. The working group has established regular contacts with major stakeholders both in China and Europe. It organises regular meetings with the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), the National Health Commission (NHC) and the National Healthcare Security
Administration (NHSA) at different government levels, to get first-hand information on regulatory and healthcare policy developments in China.
To enhance international cooperation, in 2007, the working group established contact with the European Coordination Committee of the Radiological, Electro-medical and Healthcare Information Technology Industry (COCIR), a major medical technology industry association headquartered in Brussels. In 2014, the European Chamber founded the Consumable and
Disposable Medical Devices (CDMD) Advisory Committee.
