Summary

In order to implement the requirements of epidemic prevention and control, and properly carry out the technical review work, CFSA continues to adopt the way of online video evaluation for new food-related products.

Through above analysis and summary, it can be seen that compared to 2020, the number of accepted products (58) and the number of the products for public comment (46) in 2021 has increased significantly, especially for imported products. This shows that the pace of compliance of import companies is also accelerating under the normalization epidemic situation.

The application process of new food contact additives and resins includes three important stages. Stage 1, NHC accepts the application. Stage 2, CFSA issues the drafts for public comments after technical review. Stage 3, NHC approves the application. Generally, the application timeline is at least one year. Thus, if the application is accepted in this year, its draft for public comment will generally be issued in this year or next year, and if goes well, it will be approved in next year or the year after next year. This can also be clearly seen from the summary of the above table (the number of products officially approved in 2021 and the number of the products for public comment in 2020 are same).

Enterprises who want to carry out the application are suggested to strengthen the feasibility analysis of product registration, ensure the quality of application dossiers, and make adequate preparations for product technical review. If you have any needs or questions, please contact us at service@cirs-group.com.
