    Takehome:

    • Standards for nutrition and special dietary food, specifications of nutritional fortification substance such as ARA, DHA are planned to be revised/formulated.
    • Totally 23 standards are included in this plan, 18 out of them are proposed to be formulated.

    On Sept. 2nd, 2019, China's National Health Commission (NHC) released the 2nd batch of national standards revision and formulation list[1], including 8 items for nutrition and special dietary food and 15 standards for specifications of nutritional fortification substance. So far, a total of 80 national standards related to food safety are listed in the 2019 legislation scheme (including 57 items issued last time[2]).

    Earlier ChemLinked has reported that compared to the draft version, some standards are removed from the consultation draft[3]. But according to the latest announcement, those 23 standards removed are actually included in the second batch.
