China HACCP Certification Scheme

The China HACCP is the national certification scheme implemented by the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China (CNCA). Being certified with the China HACCP will benefit foreign food producers to comply with the Chinese food import regulations and national standards.

CNCA introduced the HACCP system through the CNCA Announcement No.3 2002. Since then, the HACCP certification scheme has seen several updates. Latest version of the implementation rules is CNCA-N-008: 2011: “Implementation Rules for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) System Certification”, and the reference standards are GB / T 27341: “Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System - General Requirements for Food Processing Plant” and GB 14881: “General Hygiene Regulation for Food Enterprises Standard”.

Being certified with the China HACCP is an excellent statement of a foreign food producer’s willingness to ensure their products are complying with the Chinese import regulations and standards. It also represents an important referential material for Chinese authorities both at the national and local level, including the CNCA registration for overseas high-risk food producers, and the compulsory CIQ inspection at the entry borders. Last but not the least, the China HACCP quality mark is widely promoted by CNCA and gives positive exposure of products in the Chinese market.

What are the advantages of the China HACCP certification?

  • Increase the company and product brand awareness in the Chinese market;
  • Significantly facilitate CNCA registration process for dairy, infant formula, aquatic product, and meat product producers;
  • Accelerate the QIC clearance at the Chinese border;
  • Provide access to unique promotion opportunities in China.
