ATA Carnets – new requirement China

30 March 2015

China has introduced a registration process for businesses using ATA Carnets. After presenting Carnets for customs validation at airports, in the case of hand carried goods, travellers must visit a CCIPT/CCOIC office within 3 days of entry to complete the registration process.

For freight shipments the customs broker must contact CCIPT/CCOIC to carry out electronic data registration before clearing the goods through customs.

CCOIC main offices are located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tianjin (see the contact list below).
