Updated information concerning shipments to China for agents in Finland

As informed earlier Chinese Customs have placed strict requirements for information concerning shipments to China.

To ensure compliance with the new customs requirements we need to introduce a new customs information indicator for shipments to China.

Therefore, please enter indicator “T” in the OCI information of your FWB and FHL messages for shipments to China.
Inclusion of this OCI information enables smooth arrival procedures for your shipments to China.

You will also find an updated excel sheet detailing the required information at this link (document). The excel sheet needs to be sent to:

Also find some examples of correct FWB/FHL messages with complete information here (PDF).

We will do our utmost to guide you with this process, but in the case that China returns shipments due to a lack of information from origin, we reserve the right to charge costs (fine and returning the shipment to origin) from the customer.
