China: China's Hemp and Hemp Products Import Policies

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2021-0113

While hemp has been grown in China for centuries, liberalization of production, processing, and use regulations have only come in recent years. China’s hemp regulations are opaque, incomplete, ever-changing, and vary by province. These regulations continue to change as hemp and hemp products gain more consumer awareness and popularity. However, only a few provinces regulate hemp and streamlined national guidelines do not exist. This report lays out Post’s understanding of China’s hemp product import requirements as of September 2021. Interested exporters are strongly encouraged to work with their importers for the most accurate and current requirements.
