Announcement on Suspension of Sales of Tablet Presses and Capsule Filling Machines to the United States


Dear members of Alibaba.com,


Recently, it has been observed that certain illegal pharmaceutical companies in the United States have been purchasing tablet presses and capsule filling machines from non-regulated channels

to produce and sell drugs illegally. The U.S. government is looking into various ways to tighten control on these products.

Tablet presses and capsule filling machines include, but are not limited to all products posted under the “Pharmaceutical Machinery-Tablet Press”, “Pharmaceutical Machinery - Capsule

Filling Machines” categories and Tablet presses and capsule filling machines in other categories.

Members should properly fulfill orders already in transit for sales and suspend the sales of these products to the United States.

We will continue to monitor policies across various countries, and adjust our site policy accordingly. If you have any questions, please call 400-826-1688. Thank you for your understanding.
