Apple requires suppliers to comply with Chinese customs regulations


2022-08-06: [Chinese Article Link]  Source: Global Times [Global Times Consolidated Report] As the United States Speaker of the House of Representatives, Pelosi, was condemned for his visit to Taiwan, the United States technology giant Apple had asked its suppliers to comply strictly with China's customs regulations when supplying goods from Taiwan to mainland China. According to information sources quoted on 5 Japan, Apple informed its suppliers that Chinese Customs required elements produced in the Taiwan area to enter the mainland with a reference to “Taiwan, China” or “Taibei, China”. Apple urged its suppliers to take the matter seriously and to avoid the consequences of non-compliance. It was reported that Apple’s suppliers were currently preparing for the supply of new iPhones and other apple pieces this autumn. According to the source, if the place of production of goods is marked as “Taiwan” in import documents, forms or boxes, the Chinese Customs may detain the goods for inspection and the goods in violation will be fined in the amount of 4000 Yuan yuan or denied customs clearance. The source added that, in order to avoid logistical disruptions and potential supply chain disruptions, Apple also required suppliers to develop contingency plans to inspect the current commodity packaging and related forms and to make the necessary modifications. Korea's Asian Economy 4 reported that China had made a requirement for the labelling of imported desktop products as early as 2015 and that it must be marked as “Taiwan Taiwan” (Taiwan PROVINCE OF CHINA or TAIWAN, CHINA or CHINESE TAIWAN), “Taibei, China” and that the words “Taiwan” or “Taibei” should not be used separately. On 5 September, the Director of the Customs Operations Committee of Guangdong Guang and the law firm, Wu Kuo-sung, told the reporter of the Global Times that our foreign trade law clearly stipulates that imported products must not harm national security, that goods involving violent pornography are prohibited, and that the interests of national sovereignty need to be protected.
