This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

In China's continuous crack down on illegal production and trading of stimulants, China's State FDA, State Administration for Industry & Commerce, Ministry of Industry & Information Technology and Ministry of Public Security have jointly announced that effective June 19, all chemical companies should not produce or deal with prohibited substances in the catalog of stimulants without permission. Online advertising and sales of such products, including protein assimilation preparations and peptide hormones, are also strictly prohibited.
