2. CIRS Comments

Health food filing is unprecedented in China. It shortens the application time and reduces the enterprise burden. With the smooth publishing of the first batch of imported health food filing certificates, CIRS speculates that more and more imported health foods will get the filing certificates successfully in the near future.

In order to enter China market as soon as possible with legal status, relevant nutrition supplement enterprises are recommended to further study on the requirements of China health food filing, carry out the filing feasibility analysis before filing application, and submit health food filing application to CFDA at the earliest.
