China: Decree 248 Changes and the June 30 Deadline

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2023-0092

The General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) has alerted importers that certain overseas facilities should “complete” their registration by June 30, 2023. Facilities seeking to minimize potential trade disruptions should upload relevant information into CIFER by June 23, 2023. Products arriving in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) after June 30 from facilities with registrations that produce certain categories of products and whose registration applications are not “complete” may be at risk of not being able to clear customs. Exporters should work with their suppliers and importers to confirm whether their products are susceptible to the risks associated with the June 30 deadline. Please note that exporters of U.S. meat, poultry, dairy, and seafood products should continue following procedures for exporting to China as outlined by relevant U.S. food safety regulators (i.e., FSIS and FDA).
