China National Food Machinery Quality Supervision & Testing Center

  China National Food Machinery Quality Supervision & Testing Center, established in 2007, is an organ accredited by China National Accreditation Committee for Laboratories (CNACL) and authorized by Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People's Republic of China (CNCA) and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (AQSIQ). It is the third-party testing organ specialized in food and food machinery quality supervision and testing. At the same time, China National Food Machinery Quality Supervising & Testing Center is also the head unit of Food Machinery Safety & Hygiene Testing Professional Group in National Technical Committee 374 on Products Test Methods of Standardization Administration of China (SAC/TC 374).

  The Center has eight divisions including Electrical Performance Testing Lab, Mechanical Performance Testing Laboratory, Material Performance Testing Laboratory, Measurement and Analysis Laboratory, Food Physical & Chemical Analysis Laboratory, Food Quality Analysis Laboratory, Safety & Hygiene Laboratory, and Precise Instrument Analysis Laboratory, which has the total area of 1,440 square meters. Nowadays, the Center has over 30 employees including eight Research Professors and eight Senior Engineers. Of these employees, five obtained doctor degrees and nine obtained master degrees.

  Authorized by AQSIQ, the Center can test products in the following scopes: food processing and packaging machinery, agricultural product and agricultural byproduct produce processing machinery, food packaging container, electrical safety of food machinery and food. Following the "impartiality and science, high-quality and high-efficiency, improvement and innovation" principles, and adopting the pragmatic attitudes, advanced technology and scientific methods, the Center provides the high-quality testing, consultancy and relevant technical services for the country, industry, society and customer to meet their needs.

  The testing capacity of the Center covers 46 categories, total 202 products, including 28 categories of food processing and packaging machinery, 5 categories of agricultural product and agricultural byproduct processing machinery, 3 categories of food packaging containers, 3 categories of electrical safety of food machinery and 7 categories of food.
