First bilateral meetings between PIC/S and the NMPA date back to 2019. The pre-accession process by PIC/S will probably take up another two years. As a next step, the PIC/S Committee now nominates a Rapporteur and one or several Co-Rapporteurs, who will manage and oversee NMPA’s pre-accession process. As a follow-up, the PIC/S committee will subsdecide on next steps, e.g. an application for membership.
PIC/S beeing a non-binding, informal cooperative arrangement between regulatory authorities currently comprises 54 participating regulatory authorities all over the world. The latest accepted member was the Brazilian Anvisa in January 2021.
