China’s Policy for Exporting Vinyl Gloves
On April 10, 2020, China implemented a new regulation for vinyl glove exports. Policy No. 53 (part of the Export Commodity Inspection Law of the People’s Republic of China) affects the exportation of medical and non-medical grade vinyl gloves, medical devices, and other PPE from China.

The Chinese Custom’s Agency requires that a “Qualified Card” be provided with all shipments of PPE, including vinyl gloves. The following information must be included in Chinese on the “Qualified Card”:

• Product name
• Test result
• Regulatory Standard
• Production date
• Shelf Life
• Lot Number
• Manufacturer
• Manufacturer address

The manufacturer must insert a qualified card in each carton of gloves, as well as each individual box of gloves, as shown in the examples above. Chinese customs will conduct random inspections of exported goods to ensure compliance with this new policy. If the producer fails to comply three times, Chinese customs will hold all shipments and investigate further.

Because most of the world’s vinyl gloves are produced in China, this new regulation will affect all suppliers. Sempermed is working diligently with our vinyl glove manufacturers to ensure that our vinyl products will include the required cards in order to prevent delays related to Policy No. 53. Of course, you can be assured that our vinyl gloves meet specified standards.

At Sempermed, we care about your comfort and protection. Always. It is the driving force behind what we do. Our gloves are disposable. The people we protect are not. ®
