14 April 2015, CIRS Free Webinar: Regulatory Compliance for Importing Prepackaged Foods into China and the Latest Updates of Regulations

Original Article from CIRS

Food safety issue has become a growing concern among all regulatory issues over the last few years in China. Chinese governments are no longer tolerant to food safety issues, and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (AQSIQ) has been putting stricter restrictions to imported foods. AQSIQ released three Notices of Safety Risk Warning of Imported Foods on 30th, December, 2014. The importers, oversea manufacturers and oversea exporters who have food safety problems such as unqualified label, illegal ingredients, microorganism pollution and so on are in the list of these three Notices. In the near future AQSIQ will be much stricter to these imported foods companies.

In the meantime, National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People's Republic of China (NHFPC) has been currently conducting a major reform of the food National Standards since 2013. NHFPC predicted that the revision of food National Standards which includes specific product standards, individual food additive standards, food testing method standards, food related product standards and etc. would be completed by the end of 2015. For the moment, parts of National Standards have been revised and released by NHFPC, and some standards which will exert tremendous influence on imported foods will come into force in 2015.

From these actions of Chinese governments who are in charge of food safety, we can see that 2015 will be very important for food industry. In this Webinar CIRS Food Safety and Regulatory Affairs Department will focus on regulatory compliance obligations for imported foods and highlights of relevant regulations in China. We cordially invite you and your colleagues to join us and take the advantage of this unique opportunity.
