Exporting potato crisps to China



Can you please advise what export documents are required to export UK potato crisps to China?


Hi there,

I hope you get an answer to your question shortly.

In the meantime, I recommend also looking at the Institute of Export and International Trade’s helpdesk for more specific advice:




You can lookup official EU advice on trade with China based on the tariff/commodity code for potato chips here:

However, I would advise caution as the list of documents is pretty generic in my opinion and it’s very likely only some will be required.  You should ask your customer or importer in China if they have any document requirements and it will likely be an invoice, Certificate of Origin and perhaps a sanitary certificate because of the food element.

In case useful you can raise these documents via our online tool e-z Cert at for www.e-zcert.co.uk/uk for the Certificate of Origin and e-z Consign for a wide range of other documents at http://www.4-exim.com
