China is in the process of implementing a revised regulatory and registration system for imported feed and feed additives. Under this system, companies need to complete the following three steps before they can export feed ingredients or additives to China: 1) obtain an import registration license from the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), 2) apply for market access with the General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), and 3) have their manufacturing facility be registered by AQSIQ. This process can include an audit, which China requires the exporter to pay for. Products considered to be “traditionally traded” by AQSIQ can continue to be exported to China while they complete steps two and three. MOA’s registration process typically takes several months, while the market access and registration with process AQSIQ can take two or more years.
