According to the recently promulgated National Medical Products Administration (NMPA –
formerly CFDA - China Food and Drug Administration) regulation, drug substances, excipients
and packaging materials are required to be reviewed and approved at the same time as
approving the registration application of the drug product. Excipient manufacturers need to
submit filing dossiers to NMPA to be approved by NMPA in order to receive a DMF filing
acceptance notice / pre-assigned DMF number
After receipt of the DMF filing acceptance notice, finished dosage Pharmaceutical
manufacturers can go ahead with research or NMPA drug registration with excipients that
already have pre-assigned DMF numbers. Then the NMPA will conduct a technical review /
assessment of excipient’s DMF dossier along with the drug application.
Once a technical review is approved by NMPA, subsequent pharmaceutical manufacturers
that intend to apply for NMPA drug registration with the registered excipients, will only need to
receive a Letter of Authorization (LOA) issued by the excipient manufacturer, and NMPA will
utilize the existing DMF data of the excipient without additional technical review of the said
