Concerning the importers who have demands of selling imported alcohol during the seven-day-long Chinese New Year holiday （February 8 to February 14）, the NTA has communicated to relevant units that the inspection of samples of imported alcohol that have already been sent to the laboratory must be sped up and completed before the holidays.
In addition, the inspection of imported alcohol which is submitted for release-after-documentary examination will be completed before February 7 in principle, except for special cases. Furthermore, please contact +886 2 2322-8489 for any emergency issues.
The NTA also explained that the inspection system of imported alcohol has been implemented since January 1, 2006. Application cases have continued to increase in recent years, from approximately 10 thousand cases in 2006 to 100 thousand cases in 2023. Despite this, the NTA will continue to improve inspection effectiveness and protect sanitary security of alcohol consumption.
