Labeling compliance is the number one issue that CIQ deals with when goods arrive in Chinese harbors and airports.
This speaks for itself, there’s simply not enough information available, or people don’t always look for help from professionals, who can assist in the process when creating and registering labels.
In this article, I explain about labeling requirements when exporting to China, about standards and regulations that apply, how you can register your labels and more.
Overview of labeling requirements in China
Some common questions asked among exporters are:
- How China sets standards for product labeling
- What labeling standards that apply to your products
- Who manages the registration and approval of labels
- How you can prove that you comply with the standards
First of all, there are general national regulations issued by AQSIQ, MOFCOM and other authorities, often referred to as “announcements” or “decrees”.
These are issued to protect the rights and interests of consumers, uses of additives, labeling, product quality, just to mention a few.
