China’s FDA Issues Draft Regulations for Nutritional Supplements

December 1, 2014

Setting the stage for a regulatory notification and recording system, China’s Food and Drug Administration has released two draft documents for nutritional supplements. Both draft regulations address nutritional supplements, which are defined as vitamins and minerals by China’s FDA.

The draft documents “Administrative Regulations for Nutritional Supplements” and “Information Requirement for Nutritional Supplements” are the first steps toward the modernization of China’s health food industry.

Groups like the U.S. – China Health Products Association (USCHPA), have been pushing for such changes to China’s regulatory process for years, by providing information and engaging the Chinese government.

Since 2010, the association has been publishing the annual dietary supplement industry position paper and shares it with China’s FDA and State Council as well as the National People’s Congress Legislative Office.
