WASHINGTON — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced plans to place regulators in China, pending approval from the Chinese government.

The agency said Friday the State Department had approved a plan to establish eight full-time, permanent FDA positions at U.S. diplomatic posts in China. The FDA also plans to hire five Chinese employees to work with the FDA at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and the U.S. Consulates General in Shanghai and Guangzhou. "Our efforts to fill permanent FDA positions in China are a significant step toward ensuring access to safe food, drugs and medical devices in the global market," said Murray M. Lumpkin, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for international and special programs.FDA may station inspectors in China
