Looking to Future Changes in the Industry
Access to the food market in China provides a tremendous opportunity for food ingredient, additive, and supplement manufacturers based on the sheer size of the market in comparison to other countries. However, to date, obtaining approvals for these ingredients in China has been fraught with complex and in-depth approval requirements, changing regulatory frameworks, and lengthy review times.
Even now, we are tracking several changes that are making their way through the Chinese government. Companies considering seeking approval for their food-related ingredients/products will want to be aware of the following key changes in the regulatory frameworks in China:
These came into effect on July 1st, 2016. We are waiting for the publication of the technical guidance documents for health foods to review the specific details of how the changes will affect applications in practice.
The FSMP regulation creates a new pre-market approval process that manufacturers will need to comply with prior to marketing their FSMP.
We will be closely monitoring these regulations and the forthcoming publication of the technical guidance documents so as to provide our clients with the most up-to-date and product-specific guidance on these changes. Stay tuned for further updates on these and other regulatory topics. If you have any questions about these regulations please contact us directly firstname.lastname@example.org
