China: China’s National Food Safety Standard on Nut and Seed Food

On December 31, 2014, China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) published its final rule, the National Food Safety Standard on Nut and Seed Food (GB 19300-2014). This rule will replace the Hygienic Standard on Roasted Food (GB 19300-2003) and the Hygienic Standard on Food of Nuts (GB 16326-2005), and will take effect on May 24, 2015. China originally notified the National Food Safety Standard on Nut and Seed Food to the WTO as G/N/SPS/CHN/523 during its draft stage in 2012. The following report contains an unofficial translation of this final rule.
