Chinese guidelines updated for scrap exporters

According to a member-update from the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI) China's Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), has provided new guidelines for exporters and suppliers who are applying for export permits to ship scrap into China.  These changes will come into effect on February 1st, 2018.   The new guidelines include a few key changes:  

  1. Applicants must follow China's environmental control standards by complying with their contaminants thresholds.
  1. Exporters' facilities must have radiation detection equipment.
  1. The China Certification and Inspection Group (CCIC) will no longer be the sole approved pre-shipment inspection company. Third-party companies may apply to receive a licence from AQSIQ to conduct pre-shipment inspections. These companies will share the liability if material approved before shipping is rejected once it reaches a Chinese port.

All new AQSIQ Registration Certificates will be valid for five years.  Visit www.cari-acir.org. for more information.
