Exporting outside EU

Question posted by Louise Gee, on behalf of Gallya Deelya LTD. in E1

I have a small skincare business. I have no experience of export and would like to know which Middle East and Asian countries are the easiest ones to export to. I know there is not such thing as easy, I mean relatively easier than in others. Grateful for your advise.

Hi

Requirements vary greatly from country to country, and ultimately are dependent upon the type of products you are exporting.

Please could you supply further information on your products such as if they contain any controlled chemicals, active ingredients, animal byproducts etc? We can then look to establish which markets would be the easiest to get your products into.

Alternatively it may be worth subscribing to an international trade procedures guide such as Tates or Croners and cross referencing your products against each countries individual requirements/considerations. I know that one of these offers a 14 day free trail so you can get a feel for your potential markets without any immediate financial commitment.

Kind regards

Thank you for your advice dear Gemma!

Is there an internally agreed list of controlled chemicals? or is this a British list?
No animal byproducts.
There is a large number of active ingredients - should I provide you with the full list?

Many thanks,
Louise.

Gemma,

My apologies, I meant 'is there an internationally agreed list of controlled chemicals?'

Thank you very much!

Louise.

Before you supply further product information it is worth bearing in mind that this is an open public forum - incase any of the data is commercially sensitive.

Unfortunately I do not know of any blanket list of internationally controlled chemicals.

I have always found it to be a case of doing as much research as possible, referring to multiple reliable sources for guidance.

If you are happy to continue and provide product information please go ahead. Alternatively I would suggest a combination of:

Trade Procedures Guides
UK Trade Tariff
Market Access Database
UKTI
Relevant countries British Chamber of Commerce
Relevant countries Embassy
Exiting Distribution/Agent networks for similar products in market

It really is a case of homework homework homework!

Kind regards

Gemma
