BEIJING - China will tighten its regulation on baby formula after a recent scandal, an official statement said on Wednesday.

All infant formula sold in China, including those purchased through cross-border e-commerce, must be registered with the country's food and drug authorities, said an online statement of the tariff department of the Ministry of Finance.

The new policy will take effect from 2018.

The government will publish a list of approved products, the statement said.
