the administration system in china for import food inspection and quarantine
The Administration System in China for Import Food Inspection and Quarantine


General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (AQSIQ) is a ministerial administrative organ directly under the State Council of the People's Republic of China in charge of national quality, metrology, entry-exit commodity inspection, entry-exit health quarantine, entry-exit animal and plant quarantine, import-export food safety, certification and accreditation, standardization, as well as administrative law-enforcement.

With purpose to perform the function of entry-exit inspection and quarantine, AQSIQ has set up in total 35 Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureaus (CIQ) in China's 31 provinces, near 300 branches and more than 200 local offices across the country, with employees totaled over 30,000 in goods distributing center at sea ports, land ports and airports. AQSIQ provides direct leadership to all the CIQ.


Food Safety Management

The recent Chinese National People’s Congress has approved the Chinese Food Safety Law which is to become effective June 1, 2009.

AQSIQ is responsible for inspecting, supervising and administering the safety, hygiene and quality of the imported and exported foods and cosmetics.

1. It is AQSIQ that should inspect, quarantine, supervise and manage the imported foods, food additive, food container, packaging material, instrument and equipment for food production.

2. Pre-warning System for Entry-exit Food Inspection and Quarantine Risk and Quick Response System have been established by AQSIQ with the view to take preventive safeguarding and treating measures against the possible risk or potential harm caused by imported and exported food.

chinese label regulation
Chinese Label Regulation
  • Chinese labels must include: Food Name, Ingredients, Net Weight, Countryof Origin, Date of Production (Year/Month/Day), Expiration date (Year/Month/Day), Store Condition, Distributor Name and Address.
  • Chinese label must be covered over the foreign language package in the designated position of the package surface, or printed on the package surface directly, this method can help the goods to pass the inspection procedure rapidly. Imported food products can not be permitted into the Chinese retail market without Chinese labels.
  • The local CIQ is in charge of the Chinese label inspection and keeps records according to the Chinese National Standards.
