Chinese Provinces Told to Advance Regulatory Science and Technology

Posted 12 September 2013 | By Ansis Helmanis

China's Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has issued a notice to the country's provinces and municipalities instructing them to prioritize scientific and technological innovation in order to bolster food and drug regulation in keeping with the Party's Long-term Scientific and Technological Development Plan (2006-2020). 

In accordance with the requirements of the State Council on institutional reform and transformation, the notice instructs local food and drug regulatory departments at all levels to implement information technology such as: networking, cloud computing, wireless radio frequencies (RF), bioinformatics, enhanced computer technology and other modern information technology applications. 

The need for this initiative is underscored by China's rapid economic and social development and the use of new technologies and materials in food and drug research and production, officials said.
