A foreign company cannot register products directly with CFDA but must appoint a Chinese responsible agent to apply for the CFDA license via a written Power of Attorney. The Chinese agent is solely responsible for product registration. The agent does not undertake responsibility of product safety and the agents name does not need to appear on product labels. The foreign company’s Chinese subsidiary company, a Chinese distributor, or a third party such as a CFDA certification agent (e.g. Knudsen CRC) can act as the responsible agent.

Knudsen CRC offers to submit the CFDA application, manage the application process, keep contacts with CFDA and, finally, obtain the CFDA certificate or registration of your product – while keeping you informed of the entire process.
