Introduction & General Guidelines
Have you ever wondered what you need to meet legally when importing from China? Did you know that customs can seize your product if you don’t comply with standards, have certain test reports and legal standards meet? Did you know that Amazon is cracking down on sellers who’s products don’t comply with standards? Have you ever worried about test reports, customs and what national laws and standards you need to meet when you buy a product from China? Not sure what test reports in terms of compliance you need when you import something? Did you ever import a product and it got stuck at customs because it did not have the right certificates that are required for imports in your country? I hope not, because this can cost you thousands of dollars. Amazon and other sales channels will ban sellers that do not comply with standards. Your eCommerce journey will be over before you know it. Then this is the course for you. In this course I walk you through all the standards and laws there are out there for the US and the European Union. In this first Module I explain all the basics to give you a better understanding what you need to meet legally, where you can save money and how to find the right standard for your product. I explain in laymen’s terms what all these standards mean and how you can simply comply to them.
