China: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

China implemented or proposed several significant food and agricultural import regulations and standards in 2019. The Implementing Regulations of the 2015 Food Safety Law entered into force on December 1, 2019. Also this year, China issued two national food safety standards on maximum residue limits, one for pesticides (GB 2763-2019) and another for veterinary drugs (GB 13650-2019), both of which will enter into force during the first half of 2020. In addition, the Chinese government announced plans to revise the Administrative Measures for Registration of Overseas Manufacturers of Imported Foods (AQSIQ Decree 145) to expand the requirement to all food and beverage products. This report presents the key regulations and standards applicable to food and agricultural imports, and includes changes to existing standards. Given the dynamic nature of China’s food regulations, U.S. exporters should verify the full set of import requirements with foreign customers prior to shipping.
