Efficient custom clearance in China and Vietnam

All customs operations share two objectives: the timely and efficient clearance of compliant goods and the detection of non-compliant goods. With the rapid growth of international trade of various types and quantities of import and export commodities, efficient supervision and customs clearance are increasingly challenging for custom agencies.  Insufficient product information and data errors lead agencies to treat many “light touch” products as “high risk”, ultimately leading to unnecessary cargo inspections and the slow-down of goods across borders.

According to GS1 China's requirement, overseas companies manufacturing and distributing products in China will need to file in their barcodes with GS1 China and get verification from GS1 Singapore. Meanwhile in Vietnam, General Department of Vietnam Customs will carry out a physical inspection of goods and request the enterprise to present the authorisation to use the barcodes issued by the brand owner or foreign competent authority for inspection, if signs of violation are found during inspection or other activities relating to exported goods.

This 30 minutes workshop will focus on importance of using extensive product data to reduce complexity, time and costs related to customs clearance.

Programme outline:

  • The role of GS1 Barcode in promoting efficient customs clearance in China and Vietnam
  • How to minimise the risk of your product being held at China and Vietnam customs for further investigation
  • Get support from GS1 Singapore on barcode application
