Nikkei reported that Apple requests suppliers to adhere to Chinese customs laws

Aug 5, 4:45 PM (Reuters) - According to a Nikkei story on Friday, Apple Inc. (AAPL.O) has instructed suppliers to make sure that shipments from Taiwan to China abide with the latter's customs laws to prevent them from being held for inspection. Since the visit to Taiwan by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and a congressional delegation, trade tensions between the US and China have risen.

The newspaper claimed, citing sources familiar with the situation, that the iPhone maker informed suppliers that China has begun enforcing a long-standing requirement that Taiwanese-manufactured parts and components must be identified as made either in "Taiwan, China" or "Chinese Taipei." A request for comment from Reuters was not immediately answered by Apple.

In reaction to a media report that indicated shipments to Pegatron's facility in China were being stopped for inspection by Chinese customs officials, the company that assembles Apple iPhones, Pegatron Corp (4938.TW), said its mainland China plant is working properly. As Apple prepares to introduce its next iPhone in September, Taiwanese supplier and assembly partners Foxconn (2317.TW) and Pegatron are stepping up their manufacturing efforts.
