China: high-grade PET does not need license

BIR has received information that the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment has officially replied to the General Office of the General Administration of Customs, confirming that the import of high-grade PET as ordinary goods is allowed and in accordance with general trade regulation.

Materials falling under category A, B and C as defined in Textile Industry Standard of the People’s Republic of China: Regenerated Polyester (PET) Bottle-Grade Chips (FZ/T 51008-2014) that meet the criteria can be imported as ordinary goods – without a license.
It is interesting to note that in the document, reference is made that “any material that does not need to be restored and processed for its original use purpose shall not be managed as solid waste”.
