Ahead of EU notice, UK eases imports of T&C from China
19
Dec '08
Since the imposition of quotas on exports of Chinese textiles and clothing in mid-2005, Chinese exporters from the sector, have been waiting for the day the quotas would expire, that is on December 31, 2008. The initial period which was till end 2007, was later extended to end 2008.

Ahead of an official publication from the European Commission, the UK's import licensing branch issued a notice to importers (no. 2767), dealing with imports of textiles and clothing originating in mainland China. The notice, despite being brief, spells an easing of anxiety for Hong Kong and mainland textile exporters, who have been waiting to see, with some trepidation over the last weeks, how the EU will proceed with respect to the supply of textile and clothing items entering EU ports.

The notice to importers states that as from 1 January 2009 an import license will not be required for any textiles originating in mainland China regardless of when the goods were shipped from that country, and that existing import licenses for goods already shipped will no longer be required when the textiles are cleared through customs. The UK Notice specifies that the European Commission has confirmed that prior surveillance licensing will not be agreed to replace the current double control surveillance system.

Though off course, the following categories have been retained and subjected to monitoring in 2008. T-shirts (category 4), pullovers (5), trousers (6), blouses (7), bed linen (20), dresses (26), brassieres (31), and flax or ramie yarn (115). A formal notice from the European commission can also be expected any time now.
