Doing business with China seems to involve a higher risk. Regularly we check on companies which are registered on addresses which don’t exist. We recommend every company that deals with China to perform a risk check on their business partner before sending a remittance. The Dutch Chinese Chamber of Commerce cooperates with Chinese authorities to verify company details, ownership details and more. Based on our findings we write a report with an advice on the risk factor of doing business with the checked company.
Often registering a trademark outside of your home market is being forgotten. Before you export anything to China, bring any brand to China or register for an exhibition in China, it is important that you register your brand. Not doing so can result in unpleasant surprises. The owner of your brand in China is capable of stopping your goods at the border when importing or claim damages in Chinese court. As the Chamber we have direct access to the government trademark system, where we can check, register or open a claim for your brand name.
CCC is short for China Compulsory Certification and is similar to the European CE-system which checks if products comply with certain quality standards. In 2002 CCC was introduced in China and it applies to both Chinese and foreign made products. It is important to check whether your product needs certification. If a product needs CCC and you fail to produce the certificate, then Chinese customs will not allow your products to enter the Chinese market.
Even though it is better to avoid any disputes, this isn’t always possible. When it comes to a dispute with your Chinese business partner it often is difficult to get in touch to find a solution. Going to court or the police seems to work in favor of the Chinese party more often than it does for foreign companies, unless you come with a fully waterproof case. Our local experts can help you mediate and find a suitable solution which satisfies both parties.
