In April, 2017, CFDA set up registration management department of special food, which ushered in a new chapter for the registration management of health food, food of special use and infant formula products. Since 2013, CFDA has conducted spot checks towards food of special use for years. All infant formula products have to pass tests by the companies before being put in to the market, and the regulators conduct spot checks each month, with a standard rate of 98.7%. (Source: news.ywcb)
