More clothing products added to 'Statutory Inspection Directory'
Jan '09
China Textile Import & Export Chamber of Commerce has recently released the list of 357 more products, which have been added to the "Statutory Inspection Directory" and which also has 317 products concerning the textile and apparel sector. The main products from the sector include baby clothing, children's clothes, knitted and woven shirts, knitted underwear, sleepwear, bras, swimsuits and electric blanket, etc. The export value of theses commodities totaled US $29.9 billion in 2007 and involves nearly 30,000 export companies.

With these additional products being added to "Statutory Inspection Directory", it means the manufacturers, who manufacture these products, have to go through "inspection and quarantine" procedure in the future before making shipments and they will also have to pay the additional cost of inspection and quarantine, which adds to the woes of the exporting community, who are already depressed by slowdown in demand since the last quarter of 2008.

After adding the new products to the existing list of products under the law, the Chamber of Commerce and the China Textile Industry Association have received feedback from related businesses, saying that the newly added statutory inspection catalog for clothing will only add to inconvenience to exports. It is learnt that the chamber will provide this feedback to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, recommending them to ease the list of commodity inspections and reduce relevant charges.

According to this new regulation, the administration has put in place only interim measures till June 30, 2009, under which, export enterprises just have to make declaration to local inspection and quarantine institutions ahead of export schedule and collect "Clearance Bill of Export Goods”, but don't have to pay inspection and quarantine fees. But starting from July 1, relevant provisions of General Administration of Inspection and Quarantine will be formally implemented.
