Import licensing requirement

On the 31 December 2013 three Chinese ministries* jointly published the yearly list of goods which require a license before being allowed to be imported into the country.

Compared to the previous year, nine tariff lines were removed from the list, meaning they no longer require a license.

A new list was published the following year (2015), but there were no alterations to the tariff lines included therein (see second source).
