China Regulations: Restriction on Imports of Waste Products

Chinese Authorities jointly with the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) have recently updated the import policy and catalog of prohibited and restricted waste products arriving in China effective 31 December 2017.

Hamburg Süd strongly recommends shippers, consignees and cargo interests to get acquainted with the new restrictions. With immediate effect Hamburg Süd will stop accepting any prohibited commodities listed in the Chinese catalog of Import Waste Management available at MEP website .

This process is exclusively related to the cargo and therefore Hamburg Süd assumes no liability for any cost or delays related to it.

Please contact your local Hamburg Süd office should you require more information and thank you for your continuous support of our services.
