China: Ag Food Quality and Safety Law

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2022-0106

On September 2, 2022, the National People’s Congress (NPC) published an updated Agricultural Product Quality and Safety Law of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Though domestically focused, some articles of the law hold the potential to impact trade, including sections on cold chain logistics and traceability. The law, which will enter into force on January 1, 2023, replaces the current law of the same title, which was issued in 2006. A draft of the updated law was published for public comment in October 2021 but was not notified to the WTO.
