Increasing demand of CIQ-declaration

These years in Europe increases the demand of CIQ-declaration for the shipping of products. CCC-Certification (China Compulsory Certification) is not the only thing important for shipping your products to China; you can also choose CIQ-declaration to speed up customs and controls.

What is CIQ-declaration?

CIQ stands for China Inspection and Quarantine and operates directly under the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ). There are 35 CIQ-offices localized in 31 provinces in China working closely with laboratories, local offices and other entities to secure the quality of products imported to China.

Why should you choose CIQ-declaration?

Sometimes, Chinese customs seize the goods for foreign exporters. If your products are seized by the customs due to missing certifications, you can either provide a CIQ declaration or provide the remaining documents needed.

What do you need for a CIQ-declaration?

You need to be 100% clear of what certifications are needed before you export your products to China. A third party (e.g. an importer or certification company) can help you to provide a CIQ-declaration if certifications are not needed. A granted CIQ declaration allows your goods to be imported to China, if approved by the customs.

The following documents are provided when you apply for a CIQ-declaration:

  • An introduction of your company, product information and arguments why your goods can be declared
  • Safety compliance declaration
  • Quota certificates
  • Business license
  • Importing license

The following ways may help you to speed up customs and CIQ controls.

  • An importer might send samples to the CIQ authority for compliance pre-testing before the goods are actually imported.
