On Apr. 13, 2021, General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) issued the new version of “Administrative Provisions on Registration of Overseas Manufacturers of Imported Foods (Decree 248)”, which came into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. It stipulates that all food categories (excluding food additives and food-related products) shall be subject to overseas manufacturer registration.

In November 2021, ChemLinked delivered a webinar on the fundamental requirements of GACC food manufacturer registration and gave an overall introduction to the corresponding registration system. Three months after the implementation of Decree 248, there are still some manufacturers who haven't got the Chinese registration number. In this webinar, ChemLinked will help stakeholders understand how to fill in the information of each blank during the registration, explain the updates & changes of the registration system and share with the audience the most common aspects that lead to registration and import rejection.
