New Requirement for Certain Shipments Imported via Shenzhen 

Effective March 3, 2011, Shenzhen Customs implemented a new requirement for certain shipments imported into Shenzhen or via Shenzhen airport to southern China.

Regardless of the declared value or quantity, the following items must now be submitted for formal entry:

  • Integrated Circuits (IC)
  • Mobile phone parts (especially mobile phone LCD panels and all the electronic parts within the mobile phone, but not including the mobile phone housing, mobile phone keypad or complete mobile phones)
  • Printing Ink

In order to avoid any customs delays, please take note of this new requirement when you prepare the necessary documents for your shipments such as Power of Attorney, packing list and copy of sales order or purchase order.
