Changes in novel food regulations will impact new and existing novel food products.
The recently established National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC), which replaced the Ministry of Health (MOH), issued its first regulation - the "Measures on the Administration of Safety Evaluation of Novel Food Ingredient" in July, 2013. The new regulations are intended to regulate the evaluation approval process of the novel food ingredient, while increasing the scrutiny and safety of new, as well as currently marketed novel foods. Products not in compliance with the new regulations may be subject to review and enforcement action by the NHFPC.
Key changes include:
Intertek has an office in Beijing and an extensive network of contacts with Chinese academic experts and government officials that give us a unique capacity to provide companies valuable regulatory assistance for the introduction of novel food ingredients to the Chinese marketplace, as well as, continued compliance for their existing products.
