With the acceleration of regional economic integration between China and its trading partners, trade agreements between China and other countries and regions have been signed and free trade zones have been established. In order to facilitate the work, the State Administration of Quality and Quarantine has formulated the Catalogue of Import and Export Commodities Implementing Inspection and Quarantine by Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Institutions (hereinafter referred to as the Catalogue of Legal Inspection) and regularly updated the inspection and quarantine supervision conditions in the computer However, not all statutory inspection and quarantine items are listed in the above-mentioned catalogue, depending on the circumstances of the law. The complete set of equipment in statutory inspection and quarantine commodities has no special commodity code, which should be determined according to the relevant business documents of AQSIQ.
Generally speaking, not all import and export commodities under statutory inspection are inspected by inspection and quarantine agencies. For example, the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) is responsible for the inspection of import and export medicines by the inspection agencies located in various places; the inspection of import and export boilers and pressure vessels is undertaken by the special inspection agencies of the Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision; and the inspection of import and export ships is undertaken by the shipping inspection institutes of the transportation departments.
