And because the range of chemicals is so wide that what other documents need to be provided depends on the product’s name and HS. What documents need to be provided should be provided, and finally these documents shall be provided to the customs for approval. Only after the approval of the customs can submit documents for declaration. If the documents are not complete, the customs declaration can only be carried out after the documents are completed. There is a high probability that chemicals will be inspected and unpacked. If the box cannot be opened, the export enterprise shall put on record at the customs in advance.

The production unit's original official seal must be stamped on the shipping marks.
Spot delivery may be subject to spot checks during security inspections. Security staff will call the previously reserved 24-hour number to inquire about the goods, so the telephone should be kept open during the delivery period.
In addition, the delivery in the old freight station may encounter the sampling inspection by the chemical research institute. If the result of sampling inspection is qualified, it will be released immediately and a notice of sampling inspection result will be issued. If the result is unqualified or not available immediately, it will be brought back to the headquarters for further inspection. It should be noted that the box of some chemical products cannot be unpacked, or the chemicals will fail after opening the packaging. If the box cannot be opened, it will be asked to shut out Therefore, before the operation, make sure whether the box can be opened and select the suitable flight in time.
