Food additives act as a significant role in food products. Their existence makes the food product diversified and accelerates the development of food industry. Currently, China has formulated a positive list of food additives, GB2760. However, with the development of food industry, the use scope and amount of existing food additives in the current provisions cannot meet the needs of food innovation and optimization. Therefore, considering food safety and the development of food industry, the competent authorities allow stakeholders to apply for new food additives registration. The new food additive can be used after the administrative review gets approval. If it gets approval, the new food additive can be used.

To help enterprises have an overview of new additive registration, this webinar will introduce the status quo of new food additive approvals and how to apply for the registration of new food additives.
