SeminarSpezialChina Export Control Scheme and the Draft New Law

How may your business with China be affected by China export control scheme?

China does have a set of export control regulations in place now and occasionally companies are being investigated for failure to comply with such regulations, which sometimes jeopardizes the business operations of foreign investment in China. The Draft China Export Control Law, modelled largely on US export system and possibly to be passed in 2019, has caused attention mainly for two reasons:

(a) the potential huge penalties for non-compliance, e. g. 5 - 10 times of the amount of illegal export business, and possible criminal consequences;
(b) its extra-territorial impact on foreign companies.

Compliance with China export control regulations can be a complex matter because China does not control export through ECCN, but by both description of the controlled items and the HS codes of the given items. Besides the burden to ascertain controlled items by description, the trader has also to ensure correctness of the HS codes declared to China customs. Accordingly, compliance with China export control regulations largely depends on:

(a) sound legal determination of HS codes;
(b) thorough understanding of various controlled and listed items; and
(c) ability to prepare in advance the legal defense to disprove the „Should-Have-Known“ knowledge of inappropriate end use of exported items.

1. Familiarize oneself with China existing export control structure
2. Understand supervision patterns by enforcing authorities of export control regulations
3. Be aware of the business or personal exposures triggered by export control non-compliance
