CHINESE REGULATIONS FOR EXPORT OF MEDICAL RULES As of April 01, 2020, the Chinese government has new rules concerning the export of medical products as per the below points. • No company, foreign or local, will be allowed to export any medical products out of China without a locally approved certificate from the relevant Chinese authorities. This is the Chinese certificate equivalent to an FDA & CE certificate. • Importers must refer to the published list of companies allowed to export medical products. • If found in violation the offenders will be severely punished. • Prior to April 01, 2020, foreign companies operating in China were allowed to export their products after obtaining an FDA or CE approval or registration. This is not the case anymore. If companies do not have the relevant Chinese approvals, then they cannot export to any overseas markets. • USA importers will need to recheck to see if they can import masks out of China as the US government has taken many Chinese companies off the FDA list. • If an American company imports from a Chinese company that is not on the FDA list, there is a huge risk of the shipment being confiscated on arrival in the USA.
