Abstract: The State Administration for Market Regulation solicited revision opinions and suggestions from the public before June 4 of 2023 on the Measures on the Supervision and Administration of the Quality and Safety of Edible Agricultural Products Market Sales (Revised Draft for Comments) (hereinafter referred to as the Draft for Comments). The Draft for Comments is an important basis for the supervision of edible agricultural products by relevant government departments, which is a revision of the Measures on the Supervision and Administration of the Quality and Safety of Edible Agricultural Products Market Sales (hereinafter referred to as the Measures) issued in 2016. A lot of improvements have been made in terms of strengthening the connection between production area approval and market access, and consolidating the main responsibility of edible agricultural product market sales, which will help ensure food safety and promote high-quality development of agriculture. Meanwhile, compared with the original Measures, the content of this Draft for Comments contains changes that are closely related to production and lifestyles, such as “encouraging (pre-packed) clean vegetable on the market”, and removing “drying” processing methods. The author believes that there are some contradictions among these changes and regulation for the achievement of environmental friendly effect, establishment of the basis for regulation and implementation, and interests of small-holder farmers who account for the vast majority of China, and therefore proposes three revision suggestions.

Key words: Edible agricultural products, marketing, packaging, processing
