Upcoming Chinese Footwear Mandatory Standards
The China government will issue two mandatory footwear standards in the near future. One is safety technical specifications for infants’ and children’s footwear, and the other is general safety requirements for adults’ footwear.
There will be an expected grace period of 24 months after the release date of the standards.

Once the grace period ends, all footwear in the market including inventories shall meet the requirements of the new standards.
