On December 7, website of Shanghai Customs released an administrative penalty from Shanghai Pudong International Airport Customs on Amore Cosmetics (Shanghai) Company.

It was announced that Shanghai Guanlian Custom Company was entrusted to declare the import of one cargo to Pudong International Airport Customs under the supervision of “general trade” on September 22, 2021. The declared name was “Fragrance for Cosmetics” and the quantity was 140 kg with the declared price of CIF 17290 Euro (about $19,491.01). The goods were declared as “non-hazard chemicals”.
