The U.S.-China Health Products Association (USCHPA) is staging a free seminar at next week’s SupplySide West show to provide the lowdown on the latest regulatory changes in China’s nutritional ingredients and dietary supplements market.

As USCHPA points out, there have been some dramatic rule changes over the last year in the wake of the 2015 China Food Safety Law.

“These legislative movements have affected and will continue to shape the way industry conducts business in China,”​ stated USCHPA.

“These new regulations have been hard to swallow for many companies especially global players already in the market and/or looking to get in. China’s Food Safety Law was implemented on October 1, 2015. However, China’s FDA is still rolling out regulations that affect supplements.”

With that in mind, USCHPA is organising a free seminar with its sponsoring partners NSF International and TSI Group to bring the latest updates and clarity to one of the world’s most challenging markets at SupplySide West.

Topics on the agenda include ingredient and supplement regulations, product registrations and approvals, market sales, cross border e-commerce, quality assurance and laboratory testing services.

It takes place on Thursday October 6 from 3:15pm to 5pm at Mandalay Bay South Convention Center Level 3, Room Palm A.
