    During NHFPC’s monthly news briefing on 11 Jun 2014, a government official introduced the progress recently made regarding China’s food safety regulatory issues. To facilitate better access to national standards, a new user friendly inquiry software for food additives has been developed.
    The new system of national food standards is to be implemented this year following preliminary results of an ongoing large scale national food standard reform which amended, changed or removed nearly 5000 national food standards in 2013 alone.
    The software, developed by NHFPC, will be launched on websites of both NHFPC and National Center for Food Safety Risk. According to official sources, the software will provide a simple and intuitive way to perform inquiries. For example, if you type in “benzoic acid” in the query field, all the foods that it applies to will be displayed with the correct usage and limit data.
