Draft Food Safety Law Available in English
The National People's Congress (NPC) is currently soliciting public opinions in regard to the PRC Food Safety Law (Draft). The EU-China Trade Project has commissioned an unofficial translation of the law to enable as wide dissemination as possible. The official deadline for submission of comments is 20 May 2008. Submissions will then be delivered to the NPC Standing Committee for further study. A schedule for its legislative progress has yet to be set.
The China Environment Forum held a meeting on food safety regulations in September 2007. The video and summary are available online.
