8-1 Products Requiring Production Licences


In the mainland, a production licensing system is implemented for the manufacture of six categories of industrial products that concern people's health, personal and property safety, and financial security. Without a production licence, enterprises may not manufacture products listed in the catalogue of products regulated by the system, while units and individuals may not sell such products or use them in their business activities.
