The Chinese safety data sheet contains 16 parts, and the sample of hazard formula label (composed of six parts) does not contain transportation safety label.
After receiving the orders from customers, the imported dangerous chemicals should prepare the information needed for customs clearance in advance.
First of all, according to the English version of MSDS provided by customers, as well as the HS and composition of products, it is determined whether it is legal inspection, whether it is in the dangerous chemicals catalogue of the 2015 edition, if it is, it is necessary to do a good job of consulting in compliance with the Chinese label in advance, that is, dangerous chemicals will be inspected by dynamic health, labeling in advance, which can speed up the next clearance. The speed of customs clearance can be saved because of the time occupied by the mobile health inspection, which improves the speed of customs clearance and reduces the cost.
