On September 14, 2020 China notified a draft revised National Food Safety Standard for Beverages to the World Trade Organization as G/SPS/N/CHN/1169. Once finalized, the revised standard will replace the current National Food Safety Standard for Beverages (GB7101-2015), which was issued in November 2015 and entered into force a year later. Compared to the current standard, the revised standard revises certain terms and definitions, sensory requirements, physical and chemical indicators, microbial limits, and other requirements. China has not announced a proposed date of entry into force of the revised standard. Comments can be sent to China’s SPS Enquiry Point at sps@customs.gov.cn by November 13, 2020.
