For many businesses, contacting your country’s Chamber of Commerce in China is a great starting point for exploring opportunities in the Chinese market.
The large number of Chamber of Commerce in China means that there is a good chance that your country has representation, and some of the more active countries even have multiple chambers or offices across China.
You may have noticed that these days Chinese products are increasingly being shipped overseas with China certification marks displayed on their packaging or documentation.
China is rapidly developing their certification industry and Chinese companies are also becoming more and more confident about utilizing certificates obtained from domestic certification bodies and displaying their logos on marketing materials.
When evaluating Chinese ISO certificates it is important to consider which certification body issued the document.
It is a requirement in Mainland China that Chinese ISO certification bodies are accredited by CNAS (China National Accreditation Service), but with the rise of China and the development of its quality assurance market, more and more Chinese certification bodies are seeking international recognition too.
Everyone has heard a horror story about suppliers in China, but the truth is that China is also home to many world-class manufacturers who supply fantastic products to most of the world’s leading companies.
Have a look at your electronics, clothing, cosmetics or pretty much anything else you can think of, and you’ll find it more likely than not has that familiar “Made in China” mark on it.
