On March 4, 2021, China notified the National Food Safety Standard for the Code of Hygienic Practice for Cooked Meat (GB 19303-xxxx) to the WTO SPS Committee as G/SPS/N/CHN/1066/Add.1. This Draft Standard will replace the existing National Food Safety Standard for the Code of Hygienic Practice for Cooked Meat Enterprises (GB 19303-2003). The Code applies to the production of cooked meat, but it does not apply to the production of canned meat. Comments on the measure may be submitted to China’s SPS Enquiry Point (sps@customs.gov.cn) by May 7, 2021. There is currently no published date for implementation of the final standard. This report contains an unofficial English translation of the draft standard as notified to the WTO.
