CR Code

Sending Us a Sample?

If you’re planning on sending us a sample of your product, there are new Chinese regulations in place regarding how the item should be identified on the shipping documents.

According to recent changes in Customs regulations in China, effective January 1, 2011, all export and import shipments to and from China (except for documents) require an Importer/Exporter Customs Registration Code (a 10-digit customs code generally known as a “CR” code) to be provided by the importer or exporter for customs declaration. Also required is the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) code for the items listed on the commercial invoice.

Please add our company’s CR code as well as your product(s)’ HS code(s) to your commercial invoice and ship the goods to:

EastBridge Business Services Co., Ltd.
Suite 1206, Talent Center
22 Shishan Road
Suzhou, Jiangsu 215011 | China
TEL: +86.512.68185996

CR Code: *3205242280

If you’re sending free samples to China, please write “Free sample, no commercial value, for customs purpose only” on both the commercial invoice and airway bill.

For the declared value, please list a reasonable amount so not to draw the attention of the Customs Bureau. The current government policy states that if the total amount of the import duty and VAT (Value Added Tax) is more than RMB50.00 (approximately USD8.00), then it is necessary to pay this amount. If the import duty and VAT is less than RMB50.00 then no payments are required.

Estimated Import Duty and VAT calculation:

Import Duty = Duty Rate X CIF Sample Value (or 110% of the sample value)

VAT = 0.13 X (CIF Sample Value + Duty)
