Rules on milk pow­der reg­is­tra­tion

China Daily (USA) - - POLICY REVIEW -

The China Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion on Novem­ber 17 re­leased two guide­lines on the reg­is­tra­tion of in­fant milk pow­der prod­ucts, which clar­ify the pro­ce­dures re­lated to the work of in­fant milk pow­der reg­is­tra­tion. The new rules spec­ify the re­quire­ments for ap­pli­ca­tion ma­te­ri­als and on-the-spot ex­am­i­na­tion meth­ods and pro­ce­dures. The rules also stip­u­late that in­fant milk pow­der prod­ucts can only have one name in Chi­nese. Im­ported prod­ucts can have English names, which should cor­re­spond with their Chi­nese names. The raw ma­te­ri­als and food ad­di­tives should meet China’s rel­e­vant food safety re­quire­ments and ex­plana­tory ma­te­ri­als should be pro­vided if food safety stan­dards of other coun­tries are used.
