The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has extended for five years a 2007 food safety agreement with the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine of China (AQSIQ) to “enhance cooperation between the U.S. and China on food and feed safety.” The agreement includes provisions enhancing FDA’s “ability to identify high-risk food products entering the United States from China,” facilitating food facility inspections, focusing on “high-risk foods,” and creating processes for FDA to “accept relevant, verified information from AQSIQ regarding registration and certification.” See CFSAN Constituent Update, December 11, 2012.
