Last month I wrote about how importers from China need to be on their guard since U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has implemented new regulations to investigate allegations of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) evasion.
It is far cheaper in the long run to avoid China employment law problems than to have to deal with one that has arisen.
If you are importing products from China you need to do your homework to make sure your incoming shipments into the United States comply with U.S. Customs laws and regulations. Compliance with U.S. Customs laws and regulations is critical in avoiding your shipments being detained or seized, and/or penalties assessed.
Every employer in China should have its own set of Rules and Regulations because without one you will have an extremely tough time terminating a China employee.
Every year U.S. producers file 10-15 petitions asking the U.S. government to investigate whether certain products imported into the US are sold at unfair prices (antidumping or AD) or are unfairly subsidized (countervailing duty or CVD).
The China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) is expanding its reach over device recalls.
On September 13, 2016, the United States filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) alleging that China has unfairly subsidized the production of Chinese rice, wheat, and corn.
An appellate decision from a provincial high court in northeastern China may help to shed some additional light on the Chinese government’s regulation of virtual currency exchanges in China, the anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) expectations placed on these exchanges, and the liability that might accrue to exchanges in the event of criminal activity involving virtual currencies.
