Quality control of import and export for certain goods changed

26. August 2021

For a total of 266 goods, the control regulations for import and export between Germany and China will change from June 10, 2021. Some quality controls will be dropped, for some groups of goods new ones will be added.



In detail, the following changes:

For 243 products or goods from the mechanical engineering and electrical engineering sectors, as well as for various metal goods, quality controls on imports to China will be eliminated.

New additions are imports of scrap iron, copper and aluminum. These are now subject to quality control as of the June 10 deadline.

When exported from China, 24 raw and semi-finished ferrous products are now subject to quality control inspections by Chinese customs as of June 10.

More details are available in a table (in Chinese only) attached to a publication from the General Directorate of Customs. Among other things, traders must add customs tariff numbers according to the Chinese system. Customs tariff numbers are used uniformly worldwide up to the 6th digit (HS subheading). From the 7th digit on, there are national differences.

We gladly advise you without obligation about the scope and requirements of quality control and a China CCC certification. Goods and products must be marked with a CCC certificate in order to be exported to China or to be manufactured locally. CCC certification is a complex project that requires professional supervision at all stages. For several years, MPR China Certification GmbH has been entrusted with large CCC projects for the vehicle manufacturers Lotus, Tesla and Bugatti.
