China has amended its administrative measures of inspection and quarantine for its imports as well as exports of feed and feed additives, according to the country's General Administration of Quality Supervision Inspection and Quarantine.

The amended measures, which came into force on September 1, are aimed at feed safety as well as traceability.

The rules require the government to tighten supervision over production system assessment, market access, requirement, registration, port monitoring, traceability and product recall for imported products.

Products meant for export will be examined for registration, producer inspection, official monitoring, administration and product traceability.
