Is The Drone A Flying Camera Or A Camera With A Camera?
Feb 10, 2019

This seemingly insignificant question is directly related to whether China's "unmanned aerial vehicle" export market can be smooth.

From the website of the General Administration of Customs, in September this year, under the efforts of the Chinese customs representatives, the 62nd meeting of the World Customs Organization Coordinating System Committee (HSC) made a decision favorable to China's "UAV" products, " The UAV is classified as a "flying camera", which removes some obstacles for the entry of such goods into markets such as Europe. The representative products of "China Zhizhi" go to the world to obtain a "passport" for international trade.

According to the customs department of Shenzhen Customs, in international trade, commodities are classified as interests, and international trade interests must be classified as controversial.

My country has acceded to the International Coordination Convention since 1992. According to the Convention, the catalogue of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System is widely used in customs tariffs, international trade statistics, rules of origin, international trade negotiations, trade control, etc., also known as the “language of international trade”. .

Since joining the Convention, China Customs has actively participated in the formulation of international rules using technical means. Under the HSC framework, it has won favorable classification attributes and independent commodity codes for many Chinese superior export products.

This time, the drone is classified as a controversy, and it is also a twist. UAVs are innovative high-tech new products, which lack the unified and categorized attributes in the world. Therefore, when exporting, due to the inconsistency of each country, different regulatory requirements and market access standards will result. The export clearance of products is troublesome.

Shenzhen Customs Tariff Office:

If the "UAV" is classified according to the "aircraft with camera", it must be supervised according to the "aircraft". As a result, the trade control conditions of various countries will be stricter, and it is easy to form non-tariff trade barriers, which is not conducive to the entry of Chinese products. foreign market;

However, if it is classified according to the "flying camera", it can be supervised by "camera". Countries generally do not have special trade control requirements for cameras, which is very conducive to China's high-tech superior products entering the foreign civilian market.

At the 61st meeting of HSC in April this year, the classification of "unmanned aerial vehicles" fell into the category of "camera-equipped aircraft" that was unfavorable to China's advantageous industries by one vote. At the meeting, Chinese customs representatives who took national interests made full use of the rules and made temporary conclusions on “reservation opinions” and stayed until September to discuss again, which gave us valuable time.

Shenzhen Customs learned about this situation and immediately went deep into the enterprise investigation. Under the guidance of the Customs Department of the General Administration of Customs, it cooperated with the national customs import and export commodities classified by the Shanghai Center and the Guangzhou Branch to guide the Shenzhen enterprises. We will sort out the application materials and formulate a plan for the classification of drone products for the "flying camera".

At the same time, Chinese customs representatives communicated with the Secretary of the World Customs Organization meeting to obtain opportunities for companies to send representatives to participate in the September meeting. At the 62nd meeting of HSC held in September, Chinese customs experts arguing for the right direction of the discussion. During the meeting, they repeatedly communicated with representatives of major member states.

Under the efforts of many parties, the meeting finally passed the classification resolution of “Flying Camera”, and succeeded in obtaining the “camera” heading 8525 under our opinion, so as to remove some obstacles for such goods to enter the European market.

This is another effort by Shenzhen Customs to use classified technical means and international rules to "go out" for China's innovative and technological superior products.

Shenzhen Customs said that the next step will be combined with the taxation and taxation research work, continue to deepen the enterprise industry, understand the classification needs, and contribute to the glory of more Chinese goods in the international trade arena.

A "reasonable argument", a "multiple efforts", the word is thousands! Needless to say, you can imagine how much effort and sweat these staff members have paid for this achievement. There is no war behind them.
