REGULATIONS : 7 new product types need an export licence in China

Seven new product types need the licenses, which have to be renewed every three years rather than the previous five years, said Li Qingxiang, the deputy director general of the Guangdong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.

"All the new toys will have to be inspected for safety and to make sure they reach the required standard before they can be produced and exported," he said, adding that the regulations could put upward pressure on manufacturing costs.

The new product types include video games and even stationery as China continues to crack down on unsafe goods after high-profile scares last year over millions of toys shipped to the U.S. and Europe.
