Newly Approved Food Contact Substances by NHFPC

Commissioned by National Health and Family Planning Commission of People’s Republic of China (NHFPC), China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) has undertaken the organization work of new food related product technical review since July 2016. 22 July 2016, CFSA published a draft notice that approved 5 new food contact substances, including 1 food contact additives, 2 existing food contact additives which enlarged application scope and 2 food contact resins. Public can give comments before 22 August 2016. The 5 new food contact substances are shown below.
