How to add a new food contact resin or additive into positive list (GB 9685)
As an important part of food production, processing, packaging, and sales, the safety and compliance of food contact materials and products (FCMs) have always been valued. In recent years, more and more imported food contact materials have been sold to the Chinese market. However, some food contact additives or resins have not been approved for use by the Chinese government, so they cannot be used in FCMs in China unless they pass the safety assessment (registration process) of the Chinese authority (NHC).
Due to the complexity of the new food contact additive or resins registration procedures and the required documents, many foreign companies meet registration barriers. As an experienced third-party regulatory consulting firm, CIRS Group has helped foreign customers complete many new food contact substances notifications in China.
