    • Textiles export/import

      Hi! As far as I know, textiles are one of the main exports of India. And I know some people here in the US who have Indian textiles suppliers. I am sure both countries have trade relations and laws that allow you to import or export textiles without big obstacles. And I also know that the USA government has all the info concerning international trade available online on their official sites. Good luck with your business!

      I know what it is an often used practice. Many US companies, which produce clothes and other stuff from textiles, often buy them from India. Also, many people would like to have the possibility to buy it. When exporting textiles it is important to note the following: material of composition, the origin of the materials and the end use of the textile product. I'm sure your business will have a great success, good luck!

      Additional considerations for importing textiles include Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) requirements for flammability. Wearing apparel must have labels specifying content and instructions for care. All textiles must have either labels indicating the country of origin or, if this is not feasible, (yarn, thread, wool) be packaged in such a way that country of origin is discernible to the ultimate purchaser. Determining country of origin for mixed products (blouses made in India from Chinese silk) can be very complicated.

      Your question is very interesting and I really was stuck in it. After some research I didn’t find any country that might have such a problem. Otherwise, there are countries that have problems with exporting to Japan. These are sanction-banned countries, like Belarus, Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea.

      In order to answer your question I have analyzed different internet sources, especially forums and official trade web pages. It is a great pleasure to tell you that the world countries desire to trade with Japan due to the quality of products as well as to the level of customer services. Despite the fact, that Japanese international trade standards have a lot of restrictions regarding export and import, this is not a problem for entrepreneurs.

      Importing goods can help your business meet its goals and provide goods to customers that may not be available locally.

      In general, it is not required to have an import licence in order to import consumer goods to Norway. However, certain types of goods might require specific registrations or permits, or there might be specific marking requirements when importing to Norway. It is the importer´s responsibility to ensure that the terms of importing the particular goods are met. Contact the Norwegian Customs for information about goods with specific import requirements.
