One of the most common questions I get regarding CIQ is what products are affected by CIQ when exporting products into China. And what you should prepare as an exporter, to meet the requirements of CIQ.
In fact, the information you find on the internet about CIQ is a bit vague and most websites only write about the organization itself, but not the practical information that you need to know as an exporter.
I think we can both agree that what’s most important for you is to learn how to get started, rather than information when CIQ was established.
Therefore, I’ve written this article explaining what products are covered under the CIQ.
What is a CIQ import license?
Let me explain this briefly first:
A CIQ import license will show that your products have been tested, meet Chinese standards and that you’re eligible to import your products into China.
This is not unique for China, but similar requirements apply in other countries.
