Before importing standard food items to China, the overseas manufacturers, exporters and agents and the domestic importers of the products must complete the relevant record-filing procedures with the General Administration of Customs (formerly the General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, or AQSIQ) (http://ire.customs.gov.cn/). Additionally, they must complete the mandatory inspection, quarantine and customs clearance declarations in accordance with the prevailing requirements at the time of import. The consignors / agents of the imported food must then include the name, record-filing number and any other information deemed relevant with regard to the food importers / exporters on the inspection and quarantine declaration form when declaring any such items for inspection / quarantine.

Please contact the State Administration for Market Regulation for further details.
