Summary:

Through above analysis, it can be seen that compared with the previous two years (in the first half of 2020: 18 types and 12 types, respectively; in the first half of 2021: 23 types and 21 types, respectively), the number of accepted products (10) and the number of the products for public comment (5) in the first half of 2022 decreased significantly. On the other hand, the first new disinfectant raw material was approved in the first half of 2022, which is a new breakthrough in China.

The declaration period of most new food contact additives and resins are between one and one and a half years. One of the fastest product, 1,3-benzenedicarboxylic acid, polymer with 1,3-benzenedimethanamine and hexanedioic acid, took about eight months from its acceptance to final approval. Therefore, if the application dossiers are fully prepared, the safety are thoroughly studied, the registration period could be shortened. Enterprises who want to carry out the application are suggested to strengthen the feasibility analysis of product registration, and make adequate preparations for product technical review.
