Infant Formula Regulation Difference Between EU and China

Yuanzhao Yu
Thursday , 15th Sep 2022

EU countries are China’s important traders of infant formula, supplying raw materials as well as finished products to China. In the past few years, China made strict policies on market entry permits, such as formula registration and manufacturer registration. Moreover, China is going to enforce the revised standards for infant formula early next year. These product standards become more consistent with the ones in the EU although they still have differences. As the birth rate of Chinese babies drop sharply but the relative standards and regulations became stricter, ChemLinked suggests stakeholders reviewing the situation in advance and consider the future business in China.
