Beijing Business News, 8/10/17
The Beijing Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced the official launch of regulations requiring online food operators registered in Beijing to file a record with the Beijing FDA within 30 working days of receiving approval from relevant government authorities.
Third-party online food trading platforms and food producers operating self-built websites engaged in food business operations must submit a report online and then provide supporting documents to the relevant records-processing department. After the documents have been reviewed, then the record-filing process will be complete. The information of companies that have filed records will be published on the city's FDA website.
The Beijing FDA told Chinese newspaper Beijing Business Today that several companies have already filed records in accordance with the new regulations, including the third-party food e-commerce and takeout ordering platforms of JD.com, Amazon, Meituan, and Baidu, as well as companies in the food and beverage industry with self-operated online platforms such as Pizza Hut.
