Guide & Tips for Shipping PPE Products

Secure that the producer and products meet the standards for your intended market.

1. Items must fulfil the standards for your market.

2. Shippers must be approved for export and listed.

3. Valid documentation for export.

4. China customs will inspect all shipments of PPE.

– Without correct documents, the whole delivery will be stopped.

– If stopped by customs, it is a lengthy process to return cargo to shippers.

– For some cases, the entire shipment may be confiscated by customs if significant errors with products/documentation. For example, if cargo marked with a medical label but the content is not for medical use.

– Correct labelling on all packing is required with relevant information: production dates, batch no., certification data, etc.
