    1. Apologies for delay in reply.
      As far as I know there is no blanket approval for above dangerous goods; you need to check with Shanghai and Macau Ports with
      1. End user Certificate
      2. Import permit
      3. Cargo Details

      with which they may grand the permission

      Regards/Shashi
