China Revises Industrial Product Manufacturing Permit Requirements
China has rescinded the need for production permits in 13 manufacturing categories, including internal combustion engines and brake fluid for vehicles. At the same time, the separate permits previously required for the manufacture of TV and radio reception equipment have now been combined into one.
In another change, several products in the safety, health and environmental protection fields are now to be subject to compulsory product certification instead of production permit administration, with the additional certification costs incurred set to be met by the Ministry of Finance. In all, 10 categories of industrial products – including steel bars used in construction, cement, electric wires and cables, and hazardous chemicals – will remain subject to production permit administration.
Full details can be found in the Decision on Amending the Catalogue of Industrial Products Subject to Production Permits to Strengthen Operational and Post-Operational Oversight (Guo Fa No. 19 ), as issued by the State Council on 18 September 2019.
