Apple urges Taiwanese suppliers to comply with Chinese customs regulations to avoid problems

Apple has urged its suppliers to comply with China’s customs regulations when shipping from Taiwan to China to avoid inspections, investigations and conflicts with Chinese authorities. The measure was prompted by tightening ties between Beijing and Taipei along with Washington.

The US-China dialogue became much more complicated after the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a congressional delegation to Taiwan. The iPhone maker reminded its partners in the region that Beijing has begun scrutinizing whether Taiwan-made parts and components are labeled as “Taiwan, China” or “Chinese Taipei.”

iPhone assembler Pegatron said its factory in mainland China continued to operate normally after media reported that delivery of components to the factory was delayed due to an inspection launched by Chinese customs officials. Apple’s Taiwanese contractors, primarily Foxconn and Pegatron, are now ramping up production capacity, with more iPhones expected in September.
