"One unchanged, one changed, two attentions" in the import of special equipment
On June 1, 2022, the new version of the "Announcement of the State Administration for Market Regulation on Matters Concerning Administrative Licensing of Special Equipment" (hereinafter referred to as the "Announcement") has been officially implemented; The General Administration issued the "Notice of the General Office of the State Administration for Market Regulation on Matters Concerning the Administrative Licensing of Special Equipment" (hereinafter referred to as the "Notice"), explaining the implementation of the relevant requirements of the "Announcement". In this regard, the customs has also optimized and adjusted the declaration requirements for imported special equipment. The above content can be generally summarized as "one unchanged, one changed, two attentions", which is closely related to the truthfulness of imported special equipment, compliance declaration and smooth arrival inspection. attention.
General requirements for administrative licensing of imported special equipment remain unchanged
Special equipment poses a greater risk to personal and property safety. For this reason, the "Special Equipment Safety Law of the People's Republic of China" stipulates that the production of special equipment must implement a licensing system in accordance with the principle of classified supervision and management. For imported special equipment manufactured overseas, the "Announcement" still follows the general requirements of "manufacturing license for pressure-bearing special equipment, electromechanical special equipment and its components, which shall pass the type test before being put into use". That is to say, manufacturers of overseas boilers, pressure vessels, gas cylinders, safety accessories, pressure piping components and other pressure-bearing special equipment should obtain a production license; elevators, hoisting machinery, passenger ropeways, large amusement facilities, Electromechanical special equipment such as special motor vehicles and their components in the field (factory) shall pass the type test before use.
The requirements for manufacturing units of imported pressure piping components have changed
Overseas manufacturing enterprises of some pressure piping components need to obtain a production license in my country, which is a content that needs attention in the adjustment of related matters of special equipment administrative licensing. The "Notice" clarifies the requirements for the implementation of manufacturing licenses for imported pressure pipeline pipes, pressure pipeline valves and other components in the "Announcement", requiring overseas manufacturers of imported pressure pipeline pipes and pressure pipeline valves to obtain the "People's Republic of China Special Equipment Production License" (hereinafter referred to as "Production License"), and these two types of special equipment need to pass the type test and manufacturing supervision inspection (or import safety performance supervision inspection), the transition period is until May 31, 2024. Therefore, enterprises that intend to import pressure pipeline pipes and pressure pipeline valves must follow the requirements of the "Announcement" and "Notice" to keep abreast of the acquisition of the "Production License" of overseas manufacturing enterprises, so as to avoid all kinds of imports of unlicensed products in the future. Hidden risks.
Attention should be paid to the standardized declaration of product attributes of imported special equipment
Previously, the General Administration of Customs had updated and optimized the "Cargo Attributes" parameter table of the "China International Trade Single Window System". Among them, in order to further standardize the declaration of imported special equipment, the "39-special equipment" and "40-non-special equipment" parameter options have been added to the "Cargo Attributes" parameter table. When declaring, import enterprises should select "39-Special Equipment" in the "Cargo Attributes" parameter option for products that meet the definition and description of the "Special Equipment Catalog". For those that need to implement supervision and online verification of license documents, the certificate number must also be filled in for verification. For products that are similar to special equipment in principle, structure, and function, but do not belong to the definition and description of the "Special Equipment Catalog", "40-Non-special equipment" should be selected in the "Cargo Attributes" parameter option.
Pay attention to the distinction between "Special Equipment Catalog" and licensing requirements
Some enterprises planning to import special equipment mistakenly believed that only the products required by the "Announcement" and requiring the manufacturing enterprise to obtain the "Production License" belonged to special equipment during the process of consulting the customs about the declaration requirements. In fact, as long as the products conform to the definition and description of the "Special Equipment Catalogue", they all belong to special equipment. The "Announcement" is a requirement for the management of special equipment administrative licensing, and manufacturing companies obtaining the "Production License" is one of the forms of special equipment administrative licensing. In addition, other forms listed in the "Announcement" are also included.
Here, the Customs reminds relevant enterprises that when importing special equipment, they must truthfully declare the attributes of the product to the Customs, and accurately provide the supervision and license documents for the corresponding type of products in accordance with the licensing management requirements of the market supervision department, so as to ensure that the special equipment enters the customs. Fast and smooth.
