Feb 26, 2013, a five-person check team led by Jiang Xiaolu, deputy division chief from Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, conducted an on-site check-up for “pilot enterprise of entry inspection and quarantine reform of biological materials” to National Shanghai Center for New Drug Safety Evaluation and Research (NCDSER), CSIPI. Ma Jing, executive director of the center, along with heads of related departments attended the check meeting.
The check team reviewed application documents, examined laboratories and animal houses. In the wrap-up meeting, the check team gave a high appraisal to NCDSER.
NCDSER will be one of the first batch of pilot enterprises of entry inspection and quarantine reform of biological materials after passing the check, which means the approval procedures for inward and outward biological materials from NCDSER will be simplified thereafter, and part of biological materials classified to Low-Risk can go through customs directly, that will positively facilitate NCDSER in international market development.
