Door re-opened to US waste exports to China

24 May 2018 − 

Around two weeks after the announcement of a one-month freeze on waste exports to China, things look rosier again for US exporters.

US exporters can breathe a sigh of relief: secondary raw materials can be exported to China again for the time being. The General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China (GACC) announced close to 22 May that the inspection body CCIC Canada will temporarily carry out pre-shipment inspections for waste raw material exports from the US to China until 4 June.

On 4 May, an announcement was made that the inspection organisation's US branch - CCIC North America - will not carry out any pre-shipment inspections for waste raw materials destined for the Chinese market from 4 May to 4 June this year. This resulted in a de facto ban on importing US material since material cannot be dispatched in China without the pre-inspection certificate.
