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”, which will come 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. Among them, the overseas manufacturer registration of 18 food categories should be recommended by the competent authority of exporting countries, and enterprises producing other food categories can apply for the registration by themselves or by agents.
In this webinar, Ms. Lennie Tao, the regulatory analyst from ChemLinked, will specify the fundamental food importation requirements in China, introduce the GACC overseas manufacturer registration and give step-by-step instructions for the registration via recommendation from authorities and individual applications respectively.
