China to Adopt National Standards for Egg Products

27 February 2014

CHINA - The country has passed a national standard of liquid egg and egg powder.

The two standards were sent to the Standardization Administration of China for approval and it is expected that they will be implemented this year.

China General Chamber of Commerce organised experts from related industries to form a draft in 2010. After several meetings and twice requesting comments on the internet, the draft went to final reading in October 2013.

The International Egg Commission (IEC) standard of egg products was taken as reference for the draft of Chinese National Standards. Several parameters were set according to the real situation of egg farming and egg processing in China.

China did not previously have a National Standard for liquid egg. however, the egg processing industry there has grown rapidly during the past 10 years, and the industry warmly welcomed this initiative.

In his capacity of IEC Ambassador to Asia, Morten Ernst applauded professor Cao Desheng at a dinner in his honour recently. Professor Cao Desheng is Director of the Standard Sector of the Industry Development Department of China General Chamber of Commerce. Morten Ernst applauded Professor Cao on his great work, which will raise China’s egg processing industry to the same level of international standards and regulations.
