Chinese Product Licencing

chinese product licencing

The points below are general and can be changed by the local authorities at any time.

Outside China we call this “Product Certification” which are enforced by “Trading Standard” office.

The translation used within China is Product Licencing.

For products sold directly to a consumer from overseas a Chinese product license is normally not required. An example of an exception to this rule is electrical goods. The certification standard is electrical goods is CCC. Most international electrical goods already have this this certification.

In the same way as any country customs, China will inspect and seize goods which do not meet local standards. Normally this does not happy often to goods sold directly to consumers from an overseas company.

The major point to consider is if the product are been sold directly by Chinese business; e.g. wholesaler, retailer, Chinese on-line store. At this point the local Product Licencing must be in place.

Many products will not require a Product Licencing in China. To help the Chinese authorities understand your products better it is important that your overseas product testing certification is available in China. E.g. download from your website.

As covered already in, Business to Business (B2B) – page 59, it is the responsibility of the Chinese importer to arrange the correct paper work of Chinese Custom. They may need to arrange of Chinese Product Licencing before you start exporting to China.

If you wish to use many distribution channels you may need to arrange for the product to license in China. Once you have the licensing agreed, Customs will have access to the information and products should move freely through Chinese Customs.

The product licensing process can take a while it will all depend on the testing documentation you can supply to the Chinese authorities and if the testing has been performed by a recognised international testing organisation.

If the testing papers are not acceptable to the Chinese authorises then local Chinese testing may be required which will cost time and money.
