China: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

During 2015, on the backdrop of continuous food scandals and rising consumer concerns, Chinese food regulators continued the onerous task of regaining consumer’s trust by revamping China’s Food Safety Regime. Over the past two years, China has reviewed and issued thousands of new food safety and hygiene standards. Most notably, China’s 2015 Food Safety Law came into effect on October 1. In addition to specific implementing rules, a series of regulations, rules, and measures will be issued to carry out the provisions of the Law. This report attempts to capture the key Chinese food standards and provisions that relate to imported products destined for the Chinese market and notes changes or modifications to existing standards. However, given China’s current dynamic food regulatory environment, it is highly recommended that U.S. exporters verify the full set of imported requirements with their foreign customers prior to shipping goods to this market.
