International Trade

With China's accession to WTO, Chinese customs has issued a series of laws and regulations based on relevant WTO Agreements and improved the transparency of its regulatory regime. Customs-related matters are attracting more and more attention from both domestic and foreign clients. Tommy China Business Consulting, with extensive experience in the field of customs laws and measures, provides legal services to our clients in the fields of customs classification and valuation, rules of origin, import and export licensing, bonded zones, and processing trade.
Based on our professional expertise relating to international trade agreements including the WTO, Tommy China Business Consulting can provide legal advice to clients related to the rules of international trade. According to the Investigation Rules on Foreign Trade Barriers, if a company becomes aware of trade barriers in other countries, it may submit a trade barrier investigation application before the Ministry of Commerce. If the Ministry of Commerce determines that there exists a trade barrier, the Ministry of Commerce may resort to bilateral consultations or multilateral dispute settlement mechanisms to remove the trade barrier based on the specific situation and secure the justified trade interest of the company in the foreign markets.
