Registration obligation for foreign food producers from 2022
Starting next year, new import rules for China will come into effect for foreign food producers. From Jan. 1, 2022, food producers from abroad must be registered with Chinese customs, according to a decree issued by China's General Administration of Customs. It states that this also applies to companies that process or store the goods. Among other things, the companies must register with information on name and address, contact persons, registration in the home country, as well as production and production capacities. The registration is then valid for five years.
