Information about ceramic tile products
Ceramic tiles are a type of sheet material and are derived from natural or artificial. This is a popular building material used for wall cladding, flooring or decoration for the purpose of increasing the aesthetics of construction works and houses. You can learn more about the concept of ceramic tiles in Section 1.2 QCVN 16:2017/BXD.
The types of ceramic tiles that can currently be marketed bring specific effects and benefits as follows:
- Increase the aesthetic value of walls, floors.
- Create a flat, smooth surface for easy cleaning.
- Increase waterproofing of house structures.
Conditions for importing ceramic tiles
Based on Circular 19/2019/TT-BXD, units and enterprises importing construction materials are required to certify construction materials regulation conformity. This will be similar to when importing ceramic tiles to Vietnam. After carrying out the procedures for certification of conformity, ceramic tile products will be allowed to be sold in the market.
According to the regulations on procedures for importing ceramic tiles, when making a certificate of conformity for goods, you will need to prepare a set of documents including:
- Application for registration of product regulation conformity certificate.
- Bill of Lading.
- Commercial invoice (Invoice).
- Bill of Lading (Packing List).
- Contract of sale.
- Customs declaration.
- Product samples for test registration.
When imported ceramic tiles arrive at the port, enterprises will have to prepare a regulation conformity paper and a letter to bring the goods to the storage warehouse, combined with taking test samples. The time to return the results will be about 3 days and the business will do customs clearance for the shipment.
