Shenzhen Special Zone Daily:
After the announcement regarding the orderly exportation of medical supplies was published, what do enterprises need to pay attention to in the clearance section?
We've received consultations on this matter. After the announcement was published, exporters of medical products including COVID-19 testing kits, medical face masks, medical protective suits, ventilators and infrared thermometers have to provide extra documentation when these goods go through customs. They need to provide written or electronic statements to ensure that the products have acquired China's medical equipment registration certificate and meet the requirement of related quality standards in the country or region where they will be imported. Customs authorities release the exports based on a registration certificate approved by medical product administrations.
I need to remind businesses in particular that the product quality should be guaranteed and the operation should be honest and in compliance with regulations. Before export declaration, related certificates should be prepared. During the process, the declaration elements, including "for medical use" or "non-medical use," the name of the product, specifications and so on should be filled in accurately so as to facilitate smooth clearance. Thank you.
