Changes to China’s manifest system – what you need to know!
China’s 24 hours Advanced Manifest Regulation Update
Have you been asked by your Chinese partners for additional company information for new shipment into and out of China? It is our initial understanding that for US entities the information requested is the consignee or notify party’s company Employee Identification Number (EIN). The carrier OOCL provides a good overview to their customers on their website, here.
Our friends at NCBFAA are also working diligently on providing guidance on the new requirements for shipments to and from China. The regulations are confusing and in some cases contradictory. We will follow up with addition information as it becomes available.
The GACC published the original requirements in 2008 in Decree No. 172. These specific requirements were not implemented in 2008. Customs announced in Notice No. 56 that implement would begin June 1, 2018. (See links to the notices below).
Below are some additional links to the GACC notices:
- Official Chinese Decree No.172 of the General Administration of Customs: Administration of Manifests of Inbound and Outbound Means of Transport English translation of Decree No 172
- Official Chinese Notification of China Customs Order No. 56 (2017): Adjustment to China Customs Advance Manifest (CCAM) Regulation
