EISS China - Welcome Pack
Membership- Man With Van Logistics Ltd
Hello! 你好! Welcome to the Enhanced International Support Service (EISS) for China.
The Enhanced International Support Service for China is part of a Department for International Trade (DIT) programme designed to provide specialised, meaningful export support in vital markets for UK businesses.
The EISS China team is here to help you fulfil your export potential in China, providing market information and guidance, where needed, to enable you to plan your strategy. We can also make introductions to service providers who can offer commercial support to help you achieve export success.
The service works in close collaboration with DIT's network of International Trade Advisors (ITAs) in the UK and the commercial teams in the Embassy and Consulates across China. If your company does not have an allocated ITA, don’t worry, we will be able to refer you back to the ITA team in your local UK region so that you can get the full range of support available from DIT
Who can EISS China help?
The EISS China service has been developed to help high export potential UK companies to develop and grow their China business. China can be a complex market and we want to ensure that companies have the necessary experience and preparation to succeed, supported by the right resources.
Our Customer Journey explained
You have now registered for the service (either directly or through a referral from your ITA), and we will now assess the information provided to carry out a diagnostic process to determine your level of “China readiness”. This will enable us to guide you to obtain the right help at the right time. The outcome of this process will determine one of the following customer journeys:
Not quite ready – we will provide feedback and offer alternative sources of information and assistance
One-off enquiry - where you need a straightforward piece of information we will respond to your enquiry with up to date market intelligence reports or guidance documents as appropriate
Market advice – An online meeting or call will be offered with an EISS Adviser, specialising in your sector, or with specific business issue knowledge, to assist you in understanding the dynamics of the market in China and to support you to plan your next steps to develop and grow in a specific geography
In market services - Where a specialist third party service provider would be best placed to support you, we will help identify the support you may need and introduce commercial providers within our Overseas Service Provider Register.
Who delivers EISS China?
The EISS China service is delivered by Grant Thornton UK LLP and its partner the China-Britain Business Council under contract to DIT.
Overseas Service Providers
The Overseas Service Provider Register (Provider Register) comprises a range of third-party providers, who all have experience of servicing clients expanding in China and can supply a variety of specialist services to UK companies on a fee-paying basis. These include legal and accountancy services, event management, market research and PR /marketing support, and a variety of sub-categories of services within each of these areas.
Where services are required, we will select a minimum of three Providers from the Register who meet your brief and make warm introductions. Where a company wishes to pursue services offered by a Provider, they will do so on the Provider's terms of business. In certain situations, participant companies may require specialist services to facilitate working with Providers, for example if language skills are needed. This is what specialist broker support refers to in the list of services on the Provider Register, and where used, any support will be via separate engagements outside the parameters of EISS.
Please note that companies in specific UK geographies may be eligible for co-funded support to use these services through DIT's Internationalisation Fund. Where available, this is arranged through the ITA network (separate to EISS) who can help qualifying companies to understand what funding might be available.
Routes to using the Provider Register
Self selection: You are offered the opportunity to explicitly ask for certain services within your enquiry.
Diagnostic: our enquiries team may identify that you would be best supported by firms on the Provider Register, and then offer the opportunity to be introduced to a relevant selection of Providers.
Consultation: During a consultation with one of our EISS Advisers it may become clear that firms on the Provider Register would be well placed to help. In this circumstance either directly during that conversation, or in a follow up session, details will be developed to allow appropriate introductions.
The role of the EISS team
During the consultation, and prior to any introductions to Providers, your EISS Adviser will discuss the detail of the services you require, helping you to work towards creating a brief for the services required (though the responsibility for this brief remains with you). The EISS team will impartially identify a minimum of three suitably qualified Providers. The EISS team will then introduce you to each of the Providers identified, and you will then be free to speak directly with the Providers to understand more about your area of interest, and where appropriate they will provide you with a quotation for the specific services that are required. You will then be able to choose any of the Providers you are introduced to, or indeed, not to procure any services. You and the Provider will be responsible for taking conversations forward and confirming whether services will be procured. While the EISS team will not be directly involved, we do ask that we are kept informed of progress as it supports us in providing the service in the future to others.
Any commercial arrangements will be entered into directly between you and the Provider. For the avoidance of doubt, DIT and all involved in delivering the EISS service take no responsibility for introductions made through this service, and any subsequent activities, either to Providers or to participant companies. While some screening of Providers has been undertaken, participant companies should undertake their own appropriate checks. Any legal responsibilities and risks in taking up support from a business listed on the Provider Register are assumed by the participant company and the Provider. Please refer to the EISS General Terms and Conditions for details.

The terms on which we provide services to you are set out in the EISS General Terms and Conditions. We take our clients’ confidentiality very seriously and have appropriate safeguards and security measures in place to protect your confidential information.
Liaising with DIT
Completing your journey with us
The customer journey will end when we have addressed the requirements of your enquiry. This could be:
A response to a straightforward enquiry, with the inclusion of up to date market intelligence or guidance documents
The completion of a market consultation with one of our EISS Advisors, where the information and guidance provided enables you to move forward with your export strategy without further support
Referrals to appropriate Service Providers in our Overseas Service Provider Register, with whom you can engage on a commercial basis.
Your Commitment to Us
The EISS China programme is fully subsidised by DIT. Our core objective is to support companies to grow their exports to China. We need your help to:
promptly confirm, where offered, which meeting time offered to you is convenient for you to speak to one of our EISS Advisers;
ensure that we understand how the service is helping you;
to ensure we can continuously improve the service; and
to provide validated evidence to DIT about the value of export support services, which in turn helps to demonstrate the service value, even though it is fully subsidised by DIT.
At different stages during the journey, we will require you to provide us with feedback on:
Your satisfaction with the overall service and feedback for continuous improvement
Your experience of working with any of the Overseas Service Providers introduced to you
Details of export contracts and deals won following your use of the EISS China service
By continuing with the EISS China service, you accept the requirement to respond to requests for the feedback outlined above. Your responses are important. From time to time we may also ask if you are willing to be a case study for the service, so that DIT can share the experience you have had with other businesses like yours.
We want to hear from you if you feel unhappy about the Service that you have received from us. Letting us know your concerns gives us the opportunity to put matters right for you and improve the Service. If you have reason to complain you may do so in writing by post or email or by telephone. To make a complaint, or for details of our complaints handling procedures please email email@example.com We undertake to acknowledge your complaint within three local working days and aim to resolve all queries within 20 business days.
