The China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association Recycling Metal Branch (CMRA) has initiated a certification program for overseas suppliers of recycled brass, copper, and aluminum. This program does not replace AQSIQ licenses for “solid waste” imports; it is an accreditation program for the upcoming “recycled raw materials” category, the details of which have yet to be announced.
Companies have until September 11, 2020 to apply to CMRA for the Qualification Accreditation of Overseas Suppliers of Recycling Copper and Aluminum Raw Materials. Certificates will be issued once a year.
The application form is available in English here.
CARI is monitoring the developments around China’s new recycled raw materials standards and will continue to update members as information comes available.
