Issues related to customs clearance of machinery imports

  1. Mechanical import customs declaration and inspection issues: If the inspection products include 3C certificates, 3C catalogs, 3C exemption certificates, energy labels, or non energy labels, these types of products will generally be inspected when picking up the goods to check whether the goods comply with the certificate requirements. General inspection: whether the content of regulatory documents is complete, name, brand, model, voltage, etc. Therefore, when requesting normative documents, accurate information of the goods should be provided to the customer.
  2. Packaging issue: Packaging, such as wooden packaging, should bear the IPPC mark, indicating that the wooden packaging has undergone IPPC quarantine standard treatment. If the IPPC mark is not visible, the wooden packaging should be arranged according to the relevant provisions of the inspection report. The markings on the packaging should be clearly marked and the information on the packaging provided to the buyer to avoid unnecessary losses caused by unclear inspection procedures at the destination port and delays in the port area.
