Chinese Customs have recently updated the rules on products being imported into China.
For Sea Freighted FCL (Full Container Loads) of products which has been transhipped through countries/ ports outside of China prior to arrival into China, NMC’s ( Non Manipulation Certifies) are no longer required.
NMC rules still apply where transhipping of Airfreighted and LCL (Less than Container Loads) has occurred.
In relation to the Bills of Lading:
- The Place of Receipt or Port of Loading field has to be on the same page with the Chinese Port of Destination on the Bill of Lading.
- The Place of Receipt or Port of Loading must match with the Cargo Origin stated on the Certificate of Origin (CO).
