As already reported in December last year, the NMPA issued the rules for registration of infant formula on 8.6.2016, and on 22.11.2016 the respective new online registration platform was launched. Until 01.01.2018 Chinese as well as foreign manufacturers must get their registration certificate, otherwise their products cannot be imported or traded in China. Ever since CCAP has had an enormous increase in applications for registration, up to now more than 60 manufacturers have applied for registration of 213 products.
NMPA announcement No. 2017-65 of 25.5.2017 (Application Documents and their Requirements for Infant Formula Registration) simplified the application for registration, in order to make sure that the first applicants get their certificates before the deadline on 01.01.2018.
