According to Administrative Measures on Import and Export Food Safety (GACC Order No. 249) issued in 2021, companies shall make sure that the pre-packaged general food (food & beverages) has an applicable Chinese GB standard, and the formula of the food & beverage is compliant with the Chinese regulations and national standards.
Therefore, companies must evaluate the applicable Chinese GB standards and check the formula compliance before exporting food & beverage to China.
A new standard application and new food raw material/new food additive registration is time-consuming and costly. It’s much more convenient to use approved food ingredients to produce imported pre-packaged general food (food & beverages) with existing GB. Therefore, companies shall evaluate the applicable GB and check the formula compliance before exporting food & beverages to China.
Who Shall Do the Formula Review?
Foreign manufacturers of food & beverages
Foreign exporters and other companies selling food & beverages
Importers and distributors of imported food & beverages in China
Evaluation of applicable product GB in China
Formula regulatory compliance check
