    Background 

    Labeling of food products exported to China is of paramount importance. Products with unqualified labels failing to meet the requirements of China’s national standards will be rejected or directly destroyed by China CIQ officials. This inevitably leads to heavy losses for foreign enterprises. The CFDA will considerably up the regulatory compliance ante with the announcement that it will conduct special examinations of food labels of both domestic and foreign food products in the latter half of this year (see ChemLinked Food News on 19 Jun 2014). 

    With years of food regulatory compliance experience and close ties with authorities, the Food Compliance Service Team of REACH24H (FCS Team) has a unique understanding of practical compliance with China’s national standards for prepackaged food labels. This webinar will expound general requirements for labels of imported prepackaged foods and highlight special labeling requirements for those for special dietary use (e.g. infant formula) according to relevant national standards. Practical compliance advice drawn from a series of noteworthy cases will also be shared.
