|1. Apply by oneself or ask for an agency?
Tianjianhuacheng: Whether an enterprise needs an agency is depended on the company itself. Generally speaking, if a company has no requirements of time or has professional staffs, it can apply by himself. Middle and large scale enterprises can build its registration department, and I know some middle or large scale enterprise has its own law department, specialized in products registration.
But if the enterprise wants to capture the market, save time or has never applied before, we suggest the company can ask for a professional agency for help. Because if an enterprise wants to apply, first it needs to build its special technical department, and usually the registration of one product takes more than half a year, and some special one takes about one year, it is difficult for a small enterprise to support the registration through the products development. Besides, the policies of registration changes all the time, the understanding of policies is important. At the main time, one experienced agency usually can help the enterprise avoid detours, save time and money, like the company not in Beijing, the travel expense is a large amount of money.
Tianjianhuacheng: Now the agencies have varying qualities, especially some new agencies which are lack of experience, some companies use cheap price to cheat customers, use the leak in contracts and ask for unnecessary money from enterprise, so enterprises need to be careful.

3. How to choose an agency?
Tianjianhuacheng: How to choose a good registration agency? I have seen many enterprises fail in registration because let an unprofessional agency to act the registration.
To evaluate whether an agency is worth of choosing, here are some suggestions:
3.1. Whether this company has been industry and commerce registered, and only the business license is not enough, you had better check it by yourself. Because many agencies are in Beijing, please refer to Beijing administration for industry and commerce (http://www.hd315.gov.cn) website, you can find the formal industry on the “industry information checking system”. The Organization Code Certificate and Tax Registration Certificate are important as well. Besides, you can check the credit rating of the industry, and whether it has “A” credit rating like Tianjianhuacheng.
3.2. The amount of registered capital. Tianjianhuacheng registered capital is 1 million.
3.3. Whether the agency has fixed working office. The working office can reflect the power of the industry.
3.4. Successful cases. If an industry cannot provide successful cases, it means the industry is lack of experience. Tianjianhuacheng has 10 years registration experience, has helped hundreds of companies’ registration, and build a long relationship with most of them. For further information, please visit http://www.zhuceabc.cn/gs/ShowArticle.asp?ArticleID=46814 to find some of our customers.
3.5. Website. Search on the website, whether the industry has some bad feedbacks and if industry website updated recently. These can reflect whether the industry working regularly.
Tianjianhuacheng: Rank on website cannot reflect truly of an industry, because one industry can get a high rank with money. (one search engine has done this before and already been reported by public)
Of course, Tianjianhuacheng suggests it is better for a company to visit the industry. Through the face to face communication, we believe you can have an accurate idea.
4. Is a hundred percent successful rate believable?
Tianjianhuacheng: it is true that every registration company wants to find an agency which has a hundred percent successful rate. But from our experience, it is impossible. The key is the product itself, and good agency is better on the documents edited and compiled, decrease the possibility of review. And please notice that until now, China has no official registration agency.
At last, here are two advices needed to be reiterated:
(1). Please don’t believe in “relation” completely. The key is still the registration documents preparation. And as long as problems happen, the so-called “relation” cannot help you to pass the evaluation. So when you choose the agency, the key considerations are the professional compile and edit abilities.
(2). Please don’t believe in the low price completely. Some agencies use low price to attract customers, but we suggest you have to consider it carefully if the quote is unreasonable. Because prepare documents and pre-approval documents need to spend money, and it is hard to believe the agency would take it seriously if the charge is barely afford the cost. Anyway, even the agency charge high, it may not take it seriously, so we suggest the registration company finds some information and understand the registration process at the beginning of the registration.
Tianjianhuacheng: Tianjianhuacheng was organized in January 2003, and before that time, we have already helped national related department do the registration work. Until now, we have helped hundreds of company register successfully. We have representative offices in Japan, America, South Korea, Eastern Europe and so on. We have built the relationship with the area government in South Korea and Cosmetics Standards Committee of China. The essay written by us, like “Imported Cosmetics Registration Guide”, “Imported Health Food Registration Guide” and others have been reported by media and have a big influence in the same areas.
