How to declare plastic import and export in China

How to declare the import and export of plastics and their products?


Plastic is an important organic synthetic polymer material, which has indispensable application value in many fields of the national economy. Due to the large number of declaration elements and high professional requirements for plastic commodities, today dantful freight forward shared the precautions for filling in the declaration elements of relevant commodity specifications.


(1) Primary shape material

The elements include product name, appearance, ingredient content, type and proportion of monomer units, source of primer, grade, brand and model, etc.


1. Appearance (shape, transparency, color, etc.)


The actual appearance of the commodity itself mainly refers to the appearance of the commodity such as shape, transparency and color. “Transparency” is the content of the newly added elements this year, which can usually be filled in as “transparent”, “translucent”, “opaque”, etc.


2. Ingredient content


Refers to the types and contents of various substances contained in commodities. It is recommended to fill in the name of the compound, and avoid filling it as “additives”, “auxiliaries” and “others” (including toughening agents, stabilizers, fillers and colorants, etc.), and the function of each compound component can be explained.


Content refers to the percentage content by weight, and the sum of the content of each component should be 100%. If the ingredients of the additives or auxiliaries of the plastic products are polymers, volatile organic solvents, etc., which may affect the classification of the products, please fill in all the ingredients accurately and comprehensively.


3. Types and proportions of monomer units


The monomer unit refers to a simple compound that can undergo a reaction such as polymerization or polycondensation to become a polymer compound. What should be noted is the difference between “component content” and “type and ratio of monomer units”. The monomers become the declared polymers after they undergo chemical reaction polymerization, which should be strictly distinguished in the reporting.


For example, the “component content” of polyethylene under Item 3901.1000 of the Tariff Code is “100% polyethylene”, and the “type and proportion of monomer units” should be filled with “ethylene 100%” or “the proportion of ethylene monomer units in polyethylene” is 100%”.


4. Level


Refers to the “level” of product use, not the “level” of product quality. Usually, it should be reported as injection molding grade, overcoating grade, blow molding grade, electrical grade, etc., and do not fill in the quality grades such as “A grade”, “first grade” and “primary”.


5. The source of the base material


If it comes from recycled waste plastics, it should be filled with “recycled material”; if it is a fragmented plastic obtained after recycling plastic bottles, it should be filled with “bottle flakes”: if it is a primary shape plastic obtained by polymerizing low-molecular-weight raw materials, The “new material” should be filled in; if it is the second brand material, the “second brand material” should be filled in.


6, brand, model


Brand refers to the brand logo added by the manufacturer or distributor on the product, and the Chinese and foreign brand names should be declared at the same time. Models represent product codes with different properties, uses and specifications, and some manufacturers call them “grades”. For commodities with a fixed brand and model, the content of ingredients, physical and chemical indicators or parameters, and uses have been determined.
