    Starting from 1 April 2014, baby formula exported to China must have the Chinese labels printed on the cans, boxes, or bags for retail before entry of the country, according to AQSIQ Announcement No. 133-2013.

    Under the new rule, overseas manufacturers and exporters are faced with high potential risk of losses since unqualified labels and packaging of baby formula cannot be modified after their arrivals at the port. Local CIQs will directly reject or destroy those baby formula found without Chinese labels on the minimum sales packaging or bearing Chinese labels incompliant with relevant Chinese regulations and national standards.

    In addition, AQSIQ requires filing of imported food labels with local CIQs while filing of baby formula products could only be completed after the arrival of the goods. The two strict requirements strongly indicate that “no compliant Chinese labels, no access to the Chinese market”.
