All products require a China Compulsory Certificate (CCC) marking to import into China. Any failure to comply with this certification may result in the goods being seized at customs. TecEx has experience in ensuring compliant customs clearance into China.
South Korea is an attractive destination for trade as one of the most important industrial nations. Like the European CE marking, the KC certification ensures that all products imported to Korea meet specific safety standards.
The UAE is seeing a major increase of new mandatory regulatory conformity assessment systems. One of which is the Emirates Conformity Assessment Scheme (ECAS), required in order to place your product into the market. TecEx handles all the complexities associated when importing products into this territory.
