◉ Common Problem

Is China's tableware and kitchenware product standards mandatory?

China's tableware and kitchenware product standards are recommended. On the basis of meeting mandatory standards or in the case of no mandatory standards for products, recommended product standards encourage companies to make their products meet certain quality requirements, but they are not mandatory requirements.

Tableware has been tested to the FCM standard. Does it still need to meet the standards for tableware products?

In China, the FCM sanitary standards (GB 4806 series) are mandatory standards and are safety requirements that FCMs must follow. The product standards for most tableware and kitchenware are recommendations. In addition to the requirements of the FCM hygiene standards, the product standards of tableware and kitchenware also include physical properties, microorganisms and other content, which put forward higher requirements for product quality and safety. In addition to the tests of FCM sanitary requirements, product standards are equivalent to supplementary requirements for product quality.
