Summary:

The application process of new food contact additives and resins must go through three important stages. Stage 1, NHC accepts the application. Stage 2, CFSA issues the public comments of the application. Stage 3, NHC approves the application. Generally, the application timeline is at least one year. Thus, if the application is accepted this year, the published comment will be issued at the end of this year or in the next year, and the application may be approved in the next year or the year after next year.

In order to implement the requirements of epidemic prevention and control, and ensure the smooth implementation of administrative licensing work, the way of online video evaluation and defense is adopted for the first time for CFSA and enterprises on new food-related products.

Compared to 2019, the number of accepted products (39 types) and the number of the products for public comment (36 types) are reduced, possibly due to the lower efficiency of dossier supplement resulting from the epidemic of COVID-19. Fortunately, however, the number of approved products in 2020 are more than the number of that in 2019, which are 46 and 40, respectively. Overall, the progress of acceptance and technical evaluation of new food-related products has not been significantly impacted by the epidemic.
