I have been engaged in China import logistics since 2007. Below comes some of my personal conclusions on importation of used mechanical and electronic products

The main import flow of used machines and equipment
1.Confirm the used machine list, locate the HS codes and check the relevant customs supervision condition
2.Handle pre-shipment inspection and obtain pre-shipment inspection certificate. This step shall be conducted in place of loading or in Hong Kong, depending the actual situation and the choice of importer.
3.Obtain automatic import license for those machines/equipment that shall obtain this certificate
4.Arrange shipment, declare commodity inspection & customs

Notes for Pre-shipment Inspection
1.Double check the basic information of the involving machines/equipment, such as place of production, year of production, model, manufacturer
2.Check safety protective devices of machines/equipment, and label safety mark.
3.Check if the water and power devices are complete, and if the electricity wire has any bare position.
4.Check if any pressure vessel is involved. Remove pressure vessel if there is.
5.Other details depending the actual condition of the specific machines/equipment  
Usually, it takes around two days to get the preshipment inspection done. And CCIC will issue original Preshipment Report(certificate) for customs clearance purpose after the inspection is finished and the required modifications are performed correctly.

How to obtain automatic import license
1.Fill in the application form, and print two copies after filling
2.Get the application form stamp at the local Department of Commerce
3.Deliver the stamped application form, sales contract, presentation of condition, business license, registration letter of foreign trade dealers to provincial Department of Commerce for approval
It takes 2-3 working days to obtain the automatic import license
