84 containers re-exported

After the General Department of Customs issued Official Letter 6632 dated October 22, 2019 guiding the dealing with goods as scrap backlogged at seaports, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Customs has urgently carried out the inventory and classification of these shipments. However, the inventory was conducted manually so it is not possible to determine whether the goods are eligible for import. Therefore, Ba Ria - Vung Tau Customs Department conducted a tender to hire an inspection organization to classify the backlogged scrap, according to the Ba Ria - Vung Tau Customs Department,

As a result, 140 containers of scraps are on the list under Decision 73/2014 and meet national technical standards on environment; 185 containers are not on the list of scrap allowed to be imported under Decision 73/2014 but fail to meet the national technical regulations on environment.

Ba Ria - Vung Tau Customs notified shipping lines to re-export the 185 containers out of Vietnam's territory. Currently, there are six shipping lines that have re-exported 84 containers out of Vietnam's territory, and 101 containers have not yet to be re-exported.

For the remaining five shipping lines, the customs branch issued five decisions on forced destruction.

After obtaining the Certificate of Valuation, it will be submitted to the Council for Handling of Backlogged Goods to decide the starting price, before organizing an auction according to regulations.

Prevent ineligible shipments

Ba Ria - Vung Tau Customs Department said that the import of scrap is still a problem. Therefore, the Customs sector will continue to develop solutions to prevent enterprises from importing scrap to the port but refusing to receive them.

Accordingly, the Customs sector has been applying many drastic measures to control imported scrap, including remote prevention of imported scrap shipments that do not meet regulations. Specifically, the Customs authority requires shipping lines, shipping agents, must provide clear and specific information about the goods owner in Vietnam (name) enterprise, tax identification number, address, certificate number, certificate of eligibility for environmental protection in import of scrap as raw production materials, etc.) on the E-Manifest.
