On June 3, China notified this draft standard to the WTO SPS Committee under G/SPS/N/CHN/1145 for comments from WTO members, which are due by August 2, 2019. The proposed standard will replace the current National Food Safety Standard on Processed Cheese (GB25192-2010), with the final adoption date to be determined.
