EU places restrictions on imports of Chinese Plastic Kitchenware

28 March 2011

The European Commission has imposed specific conditions and detailed procedures for imports of polyamide and melamine plastic kitchenware from China and Hong Kong. The measures are in response to health concerns that potentially dangerous chemicals are leaching from these products and contaminating food.


The products concerned are covered by CN Code ex 3924.10.00.

The Commission Regulation in question stipulates the precise conditions that importers of these products must now fulfil. To view this regulation in full, please click here.
