Online CBA: What are the Procedures that an Exporter Needs to Follow to Get Dairy Products to the Chinese Buyer?
Q: What are the Procedures that an Exporter Needs to Follow to Get Dairy Products to the Chinese Buyer?
A: In order to ensure the quality and safety of imported dairy products and to regulate the administration of such products, China has implemented a multi-tiered supervision system with regard to imported dairy products. As of May 2013, a registration system has been in effect for those foreign food manufacturing enterprises exporting dairy products to China, while a filing system has also been imposed on foreign dairy products exporters and their agents. As a result, dairy products are now subject to quarantine examination and approval and may only be imported after obtaining a Licence for the Quarantine of Entry Animals and Plants of the People's Republic of China. Please read The mainland inspection and quarantine regime for all dairy imports for details.
