Regulated activities in China

Like in many other countries, certain business activities require special permits and licenses. Companies need to obtain permits, approvals and reviews before they can commence their business activities. The administrative licensing process is common one worldwide and China is no exception. Businesses engaged in selling products or creating new manufacturing units will have to obtain the so called administrative licenses, while other businesses, especially those operating in special fields like pharmaceuticals, will have to follow more steps to obtain the necessary permits.
Some of the business activities that need special permits and licenses in China include, but are not limited to, pharmaceutical companies, those selling special types of products, import and export companies, construction companies, licenses for China-based websites to operate in China and others. 

Obtaining special permits and licenses in China 

Depending on your type of business, you will be required to contact the relevant Chinese authority and submit the necessary documents for the permit and/or license. Our law firm in China can help you  obtain the permits in time, so that you can commence your business activities as soon as possible.
Other licensing challenges in China are those for joint ventures. For example, companies in the automotive industry in China must operate within a joint venture in order to be able to sell their products on the Chinese market. For this purpose, foreign companies must find a suitable Chinese partner company in order to avoid any misunderstandings while doing business in China.
