Dangerous Goods Issues In China
China introduced new legislations last year with regard to the importing and exporting of dangerous goods. Over recent weeks we have witnessed a crackdown on regulations and even more stringent checks and at times over zealous applications of the rules.
These additional checks have led to the British International Freight Association (BIFA) issuing a warning to their members, which includes the vast majority of UK international logistics businesses.
In China, the dangerous goods details must be declared on the customs declaration and Chinese customs have been applying strict package controls to dangerous goods, which include those of ‘limited quantity’. BIFA suggest that even limited quantity shipments are packed in un boxes to avoid delays in clearance.
With stricter controls in place, we at Dangerous Goods Packing provide a reliable route to exporting to China.
