Prohibited Goods

Based on destination country and the provided or determined HS code, Glopal checks any items against a list of maintained import prohibition rules, and flags any products that hit one or more rules as either warning or prohibited, such as:

  • P01: Absolutely prohibited

  • P02: Prohibited for China: Requires license/permit/certificate that is difficult to obtain

  • W0K: Warning for Australia: Pharmaceutical products. Subject to import approval from Department of Health

Maintained prohibition rules are based on national official websites and available carrier information, and in most cases manually linked to the affected commodity codes.

Prohibition checks are carried out during the calculation of total landed costs (opt-in). Alternatively, a dedicated API service allows the prohibition screening for products and full product catalogues for any maintained shipping route:
