On December 22, HCM City Customs Department removed the infringing element of over 1,000 industrial property rights-infringing handbags and sneakers in the shipment.

According to the Customs Enforcement Team under the municipal customs department, the shipment arrived at Cat Lai Port in April and was named on the declaration by Vinh Phuoc Thanh Trading and Service Co., Ltd.

The company declared items in the shipment including 370 packages of wooden shelves; 350 school backpacks; and 398 packages of food seasoning.

The team coordinated with the 1st Zone Sai Gon Seaport Customs Branch to conduct a physical inspection and detected only 45 packages of wooden shelves and school backpacks in the shipment.

Based on the physical inspection and assessment results, the Customs authority concluded that Vinh Phuoc Thanh Trading and Service Co., Ltd. falsely declared the name of goods in transit; transported products subject to plant quarantine but without a phytosanitary certificate issued by the exporting country to Vietnam's territory, including: 50 bags and boxes of dried mushrooms, dried jujubes and seeds; transited goods with counterfeit trademarks registered for trademark protection.

The team made a report on administrative violations against Vinh Phuoc Thanh Trading and Service Co., Ltd, fined VND66 million and enforced to transport the infringing goods out of Vietnam after removing infringing element on the goods specified in point c, clause 3, Article 3 of the Government Decree 99/2013/ND -CP dated August 29, 2013.
