Apple asks suppliers to label products as made in ‘Taiwan, China’

American tech giant Apple Inc, the iPhone producer, has asked suppliers to ensure that shipments from Taiwan to China comply with Beijing’s customs regulations to avoid them being subject to scrutiny, Nikkei reported on Friday. This includes requirement for the products to be labelled as made in “Taiwan, China”.

The development comes as yet another example of trade tensions that intensified following US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan – a self-governed island country whose territory Beijing claims as its own.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, Nikkei reported apple informed its suppliers that China had started enforcing a long-standing rule that Taiwanese-made parts and components must be labelled as made either in “Taiwan, China” or “Chinese Taipei”.

Pegatron Corp, Apple iPhone assembler, said its plant in mainland China was operating normally, in response to a media report that shipments to Pegatron’s factory in China were being held for scrutiny by Chinese customs officials.

As Apple is set to launch its new iPhone in September, Taiwanese supply and assembly partners Foxconn and Pegatron are ramping up manufacturing efforts.
