The Notice of the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China No.56 is in effect as of June 1, 2018. China Customs now requires new data elements to be included in advanced manifest filings for inbound and outbound air and ocean shipments. Global is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
In accordance with China Customs requirements, we will need to receive upon booking of cargo to or from China.
• Shipper contact name and phone number
• Shipper/Consignee’s Tax ID(EIN), Unified Social Credit Code (USCI) or Enterprise Number
• Consignee contact name and phone number
• Consignee/Shipper’s Tax ID, Unified Social Credit Code (USCI) or Enterprise Number
For cargo importing into the US, the EIN is already captured as part of the ISF filing. Cargo which is being imported into China will require the same information and is required when we submit the booking to the steamship line. We encourage our client partners who export to China to obtain this information from hour shippers now to avoid delays.
The additional information will not be printed on BOL’s, and Chinese customs officials may not disclose the information to the public.
