8-1 Products Requiring Production Licences
In the mainland, a production licensing system is implemented for the manufacture of six categories of industrial products that concern people's health, personal and property safety, and financial security. Without a production licence, enterprises may not manufacture products listed in the catalogue of products regulated by the system, while units and individuals may not sell such products or use them in their business activities.
Production licences are valid for five years, and food production licences are valid for three years. Application for renewal of production licences must be made with the production licensing administration departments at the provincial, autonomous region or municipal levels six months prior to their expiry date.
