This is an important goal for customs procedures developed in the draft decree amending Decree 08/2015 of the Government, which is widely consulted by the General Department of Customs.
The General Department of Customs said customs procedures will be processed via the smart customs model. The system will help with automatically identifying key shipments, automatically classifying channel; automatically identifying shipments that need an inspection of HS code, price, origin or intellectual property; automatically checking permits and conducting permit deduction; automatically checking the fulfillment of tax obligations; automatically liquidating manifests.
Some functions of the system have met requirements. Some others will be designed to help customs declarants, customs agencies and stakeholders in customs inspection and supervision.
Generally, the decree has provisions to run the smart customs management system. However, the draft should add provisions for customs procedures for means of transports in entry and exit; provisions on sharing information on the production situation, monitoring imported and exported raw materials, supplies and inventories; provisions on the settlement report on the use of raw materials, supplies of export processing firms to the customs agency.
Regarding customs procedure issues, the General Department said prevailing legal documents on goods classification and analysis are using terms "classification", "analysis", "verification" and “assessment”. The terms "classification", "analysis", and "assessment" have all been explained, but the phrase "customs verification" has not been explained. Therefore, it is necessary to supplement the explanation of the phrase "customs verification" in Article 3 of the draft decree to distinguish it from existing analysis, classification and assessment activities.
Besides, at present, there is no regulation that the customs declarant who is authorised by the goods owner for goods being movable property of individuals, goods of individuals that are entitled to immunity, goods temporarily imported for re-export to replace or repair foreign ships and aircraft.
There is no regulation on the responsibilities of warehouse, yard and port operators in transporting goods and ensuring necessary conditions for customs inspection activities.
Therefore, in the draft, the General Department of Customs proposed to supplement the explanation of words in Article 3 on "Customs verification";
Revise Clause 3, Article 5 of regulations on customs declarant who is authorised by the goods owner for goods being movable property of individuals, goods of individuals that are entitled to immunity; goods temporarily imported for re-export to replace or repair foreign ships and aircraft.
Add the responsibilities of warehouse, yard and port operators to present goods during storage at border gates or ports for customs inspection in Article 28.
