To ensure the health and safety of consumers when using food cleansers, the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) initiated the "Food Cleanser Examination and Testing Project" from April to May 2017 whereby the TFDA joined forces with the local competent health authorities to conduct random inspections for the food cleansers sold by the hypermarkets, supermarkets, and other retailers or used by the restaurants, eateries and night markets in Taiwan. The testing items of 100 randomly sampled food cleansers included arsenic, heavy metals, methanol, nonylphenol, nonylphenol ethoxylate, and fluorescent brightening agents. All of the testing results complied with the Sanitation Standard for Food Cleansers.

In addition to making sure that the quality of the food cleansers sold in Taiwan conforms to the statutory requirement; the product name, chemical names of main ingredients, net weight or volume, name, telephone number and address of the responsible domestic company, country of origin, manufacturing date, applicable targets or purpose, method of use, precautions for use or warnings, or other matters designated by the central competent health authority in public announcements must be labeled in Chinese and common symbols in accordance with Article 27 of the Act Governing Food Safety and Sanitation. Pursuant to Article 28 of the same Act, the products shall not be labeled with false, exaggerated, or misleading words or phrases such as "non-toxic" and "food grade". Those labeled with "natural" or "organic" shall indeed contain natural materials or the organic agricultural raw materials approved by the competent agricultural authorities; besides, the proportion, in percentages, of such ingredients must also be indicated on the containers or external packaging of the products from January 1, 2018.
