China Customs Reappraises Solid Waste Pre-Shipment Inspection Agencies
The General Administration of Customs (GAC) is to have a watching brief over all pre-shipment inspection agencies active in the imported solid waste sector, while also being responsible for overseeing all the related registration and administration procedures. It has additionally been announced that as of 1 June 2018 no such agency will be entitled to conduct a solid waste pre-shipment inspection until it has submitted the required documentation to the GAC and successfully secured prior approval.
Details of these new requirements can be found in the GAC’s recently-issued Implementation Rules for the Supervision and Administration of Pre-shipment Inspections of Imported Solid Waste Raw Materials.
