What is said in this article is only as a reference, mainly to let you have a clear understanding of the import of old mechanical and electrical equipment in China. Because the policy is constantly changing, each port of operation is not the same, this is a generic template, the actual operation recommended with the cooperation of the Customs clearance agent companies in the importation of equipment, destination port well before the development of a detailed importation program.

On the customization of the import program

First, we go over the client’s equipment in detail.

Determine, on the basis of expertise, whether the equipment is ready for entry, whether it needs to be inspected, licensed for import, and transferred for commodity inspection, etc..

Then, depending on the specific type of equipment and the degree of depreciation, the customer is instructed on what can be done to successfully pass the foreign pre-shipment inspection and quarantine.

Then, according to the customer’s final destination in the country, the customer will choose the most experienced customs port for the used equipment (the customs of this kind of port is very important for the used equipment). (The equipment will be more familiar with the efficiency of customs clearance, the old equipment is not recommended to choose any port hair Oh! .

Finally, according to the market experience for customers to do the declaration of price control, reduce the risk of price examination.

Import of old equipment is necessary to develop a detailed import program, because each link is interlocked, and customs of old equipment The regulation is also quite strict, if you are not careful, there will be a lot of trouble when and after customs clearance follow-up.

How to determine whether this old mechanical and electrical equipment can be imported, whether it involves solid waste?

The following three points need to be consulted.

1、Check the customs code to see if there is a regulatory condition “6” (the import of old mechanical and electrical products is prohibited). If there is, it cannot be imported; if not, it can be imported.

2、Check whether the used mechanical and electrical products to be imported belong to the “Imported Used Mechanical and Electrical Products Inspection and Supervision Measures List 1”. If yes, they cannot be imported, if no, they can be imported.

3、 in the national import ban list is not found in the goods can be imported.

How to determine whether the used electromechanical equipment needs to apply for “Import Permit for Used Electromechanical Products” or “Import Permit for Key Used Electromechanical Products”?

Not all used mechanical and electrical equipment requires this import permit, if the regulatory conditions of the HS Code are not “O”. Or if the customs code HS Code shows “3”, an import license is required. The letter O stands for “Import Permit for Used Electrical and Mechanical Equipment” and the number 3 stands for “Import Permit for Key Used Equipment”.

Note: Food manufacturing equipment, diesel aerial work platforms, tower cranes and other old equipment with high requirements for safety and environmental impact, should be approved by the following The environmental profile, risk factors, etc., of such equipment are reviewed in order to obtain import licenses; communications equipment such as radar requires. Import licenses can only be obtained by providing a type approval certificate; these old mechanical and electrical equipment will be relatively troublesome. In addition, the focus of the old mechanical and electrical import license is to be issued in the “inspection report” can only be processed after.

The process for the effectiveness of the time?

1、Pre-shipment inspection and quarantine – 7~15+ working days; (from appointment mid-shipment to report.)

2、Apply for import permit for used/key used electromechanical – 5~15 working days.

3、From the arrival of goods at the port to customs clearance and release – normal 2 to 3 working days.

4、Customs examination – 3~15+ working days.
