China Consults on Health Function Catalogue for Health Food (2022) and Other Supporting Documents

3 functions in the current 27 health food functions catalogue and 4 functions whose application were already rejected by the former Ministry of Health are removed. Involved health foods that were already produced can be sold till the expiration date. For manufacturers who need to redo or complete more experiments, they should apply for alteration registration. Manufacturers shall stop the production of health foods (except health foods with canceled functions) whose functions are inconsistent with the Catalogue five years after the promulgation date of the official notice.

As per Food Safety Law, China implemented the catalogue management system for health food functions, and released the corresponding Administrative Measures to regulate the formulation process, inclusion criteria and adjustment of health food functions in 2019. Later in 2020, China State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) released Health Function Catalogue Allowed for Health Food Claims Non-nutrient Supplement (2020 Draft) (hereafter referred to as the Catalogue) and a series of supporting documents for public comments. On Jan. 13, 2022, SAMR opened the new drafts of the Catalogue and four supporting documents for public feedback. Any comments can be sent to prior to Feb. 12, 2022.
