On pre-shipment inspection:
AQSIQ, The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China, will accredit third-party inspection companies that comply to set criteria to carry out pre-shipment inspections and issue CCIC Certificates against a fee.

As CCIC offices will continue to operate, scrap exporting companies will have to determine the different costs and benefits of which Pre-Shipment Inspection supplier to choose when AQSIQ publishes its list of authorised third-party Pre-Shipment Inspection survey companies.

Shipments to China will commonly be subject to two inspections: Pre-Shipment Inspection (by CCIC or AQSIQ authorised third-party survey company); and likely check at the designated Port of Entry in China by Chinese authorities.
