Guangzhou Customs Clearance Case: Import of Lamps and Lanterns.

The customs declarations and clearance in China for imported lamps and lanterns are more complicated that regular goods because of port differences and required CCC certificate. As a China customs clearance services provider, we here under introduce something about import of lamps and lanterns. 

Lamps and lanterns discussed here refer to ceiling lamps, table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, and bedside lamps that used in home life. At present, lamps and lanterns imported by China are mainly from Italy, France, Spain, Czech, Lithuania, Poland, Netherlands, etc. 

In accordance with the People¡¯s Republic Import & Export Tax Regulations and Commodity and Item Annotations for  Import & Export Tax Regulations, different lamps and lanterns are classified under different HS codes based on names, usages and materials.
