The Ministry of Economics announced that cycles with electric motor for propulsion is added to the list of products that should get approval before exporting from free trade zones to the EU and the United States, and will take effect on October 26, 2018.

In order to prevent products produced in China to take advantage on our country’s free trade zones to transship products to the EU and the United States, disguised as products manufactured in Taiwan to avoid anti-dumping duties and additional tariffs the EU and the United States imposed on China, that resulted in the EU and the United States to launch anti-circumvention investigations and impose additional tariffs on related products in Taiwan, affecting the rights of our manufacturers. Cycles with electric motor for propulsion that are exported to the European Union and the United States by free trade zones should receive “APPLICATION FOR SPECIAL GOODS EXPORT PERMIT FOR ENTERPRISES IN FREE TRADE ZONES” beforehand.
