SGS Compliance Guidelines for Exporting Cookware Products to China

In recent years, China’s kitchenware market has maintained a good growth momentum amid increasingly fierce competition. Product category has become more diverse, along with emerging market segments. In the past, customers paid more attention to the price of products. Similar products selling at lower prices fared better. In recent years, however, it is apparent that customers increasingly look for higher-quality products. Market demand for niche high-end products is on the rise.

The majority of materials fall into the following categories: Regular Stainless Steel, Premium Stainless Steel, Regular Nonstick, Premium Nonstick, and others.

Cookware, classified as Food contact materials (FCMs), are regulated as food-related products in China. The China Food Safety Law prohibits the importation, use or sales of food-related products (e.g., food additive, food packaging materials) not compliant with applicable national Food Safety Standards. In Nov 2016, the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) published 53 consolidated national food safety standards related to food contact materials and food contact additives.
