China Food Supplements Registration and Notification


Regulation Background of Food Supplements in China

China Food Supplements Registration and Notification

Food supplements are generally defined as food products with specific health functions or for the purpose of vitamin or mineral supplementation. Food supplements are suitable for consumption by a specific group of people. They have the function of regulating the body, but not for the purpose of treating diseases, and do not produce any acute, subacute, or chronic harm to the human body. China implements strict supervision and management of food supplements and other special foods. Only food supplements that have obtained registration certificates or filing certificates are allowed to be marketed on the Chinese market.

In China, food products are regulated by the State Administration of Market Regulation (SAMR). District, municipal, provincial, and national market supervision bureaus assume their respective responsibilities. Food supplements manufactured in China need to be registered with SAMR and filed with the Provincial Administration for Market Regulation. Imported food supplements need to apply for registration and notification with SAMR before entering China. Food supplement manufacturers outside of China may establish a permanent representative office in China or appoint a Chinese agent in order to submit registration or notification.
