Taiwan – A Demanding Consumer Market Oriented Towards International Trends9. September 2020
Taiwan has become an increasingly important market in the Asian region. Taiwan is considered by experts as a demanding consumer market, due to a strong involvement in the global economy, consumers are influenced by international trends. In 2019 Taiwan imported products from around the world with a total merchandise value of approximately $290 billion.
Taiwan has enacted laws and regulations for the quality assurance of certain products including suitcases, tires, eye protection products, electronic products and many more. BSMI certification is required for these products in order to import these products to Taiwan.
The application for a BSMI certificate in Taiwan must be submitted to the administrative authority of the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Taiwan “Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection” (BSMI). The conformity assessment for BSMI certification varies depending on the product type. The process can consist of a pure document review, but it can also include product tests and / or a factory inspection.
One of the requirements for filing an application is that a domestic company or a person whose place of residence or business is located in Taiwan acts as the applicant. For products that are imported the applicant can be a commercial agent or an importer.
