AQSIQ is China General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) is the administrative and law enforcement organ under the State Council for quality control, measurement, inspection of import and export commodities, entry-exit health quarantine, entry-exit animal and plant quarantine, as well as entry-exit food safety, certification and standardisation in China. It is the result of a merger between the former State Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision and the State Administration of Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine (CIQ) in April 2001. There are still local quality and technical supervision departments and CIQ bureaus set up in various provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, but CIQ bureaus are directly under the administration of AQSIQ.

Objects subject to entry-exit inspection and quarantine include commodities, and means of transportation and transport equipment carrying animals, plants and passengers in and out of China, as well as persons entering and exiting the country.
