China Customs imposing new pre-arrival requirements beginning June 1st.

31May, 2018



Effective today, China Customs will require additional information for shipments destined for China regardless of the mode of transport. Much like the United States has over time imposed information requirements such as AMS and ISF filings in order to review cargo prior to loading at the port of origin, China is taking steps to do the same. Published late last year but coming into force on June 1, 2018, the announcement says the purpose is, “In order to enhance the control over inbound/outbound vessels, aircrafts and the goods thereon by means of data declaration.”

“GACC Announcement No.56, 2017 on Vessels, Aircrafts & Manifests Data Declaration Items” details the information that must be submitted. A sampling of the information required includes, but is not limited to:

  • Consignor Contact Number
  • Consignor Specific Contact Name
  • Consignor Enterprise Registration Code or Unified Social Credit Code
  • Consignee Contact Number
  • Consignee Specific Contact Name
  • Consignee Enterprise Registration Code or Unified Social Credit Code
  • Notifier Contact Number (if consignee is TO ORDER)
  • Notifier Specific Contact Name (if consignee is TO ORDER)
  • Notifier Registration Code or Unified Social Credit Code (if consignee is TO ORDER)
  • Complete and accurate brief description of goods

Everglory is working with our partners in China to comply with this new requirement. Our team members in the United States may also be requesting additional information from US shippers in order to help comply with these regulations. If you have any questions, please contact your Everglory representative.
