The new Regulations introduces the risk management principles of the Food Safety Law, adopts the “official recommended registration” mode for overseas manufacturers of 18 categories of foods, and adopts the simplified “enterprise independent application” mode for overseas manufacturers of other foods other than the 18 categories, so as to further improve the efficiency of registration management.
The documents that need to be submitted under the “official recommended registration” mode are relatively complicated, while the application documents under the “enterprise independent application” mode are much simpler.

eggs and its products, edible fats and oils, stuffed pasta, edible grains, grain milling industrial products and malt, fresh and dehydrated vegetables, and dried beans, seasonings, nuts and seeds, dried fruits, unroasted coffee beans and cocoa beans, foods for special dietary uses, health food.
The reasons for implement the "official recommended registration" mode for 18 categories of foods: Based on the analysis of sources of food raw materials, production and processing technology, food safety historical data, consumer groups and consumption methods, combined with international practices, it is determined that overseas manufacturers of 18 categories of foods adopt the “official recommended registration” mode.

3). The documents need to be provided when registering 18 categories of food overseas manufacturers
The competent authority of the country (region) where it is located should review and check the manufacturer recommended registration, and after confirming that it meets the registration requirements, recommend registration to the GACC and submit the following application documents:
- Recommendation letter from the competent authority of the country (region) where manufacturers are located.

- If this GACC registration number is not registered by yourself recently, you need to re-register in the new GACC system.
- If this GACC registration number was registered by yourself in the AQSIQ system before, but the AQSIQ user ID and password can log in to the new GACC system, then
you need to re-register in the new GACC system.

- The other is General GACC registration for Overseas Manufacturer.

GACC registration requires the listing of foods exported to China and needs to fill in China’s HS code and CIQ code.
The classification rules of foods in China and the country of origin may be different. Wrong classification of foods will lead to failure of GACC registration.
3). Inexact application documents:
Different types of GACC registrations for different food categories have different requirements for application materials,
The main application materials for GACC registrations include:
- GACC registration application form
- Business License for company
- Production License for facility
- Certificate of production management system
