Applying uniformly three methods of inspection for the whole field of food quality and safety to reduce the number of imported consignments subjected to inspection. Simplify procedures for quality inspection and food safety inspection for import goods in the direction of gradually simplifying on the basis of maximum application of information technology; the system automatically decides which subjects are exempted or reduced from inspection, the firm is not required to carry out the procedures for requesting to exempt or reduce inspection.

The implementation of quality inspection and food safety inspection by the Customs authority will cut three steps of procedures in 10 steps of the quality inspection process, and cut two procedure steps in five steps towards the food safety inspection process.

Apply item inspections to reduce the number of consignments subject to inspection (switching from tight inspections to normal inspections, from normal inspections to reduced inspections for identical goods without distinguishing importer) to cut some unnecessary inspection steps and reduce inspection rates for the same item. The importer is responsible for the import consignments and will be handled in accordance with regulations if the goods are of poor quality. At the same time, to fully and substantially apply risk management in quality inspection and food safety inspection to imported goods to ensure the role of State management and improve the compliance of enterprises. Expanding subjects exempted from quality inspection and food safety inspection, with a plan for supplementing 19 groups of subjects to reduce State management and business costs

In addition, the application of information technology systems in the new model to reduce time, support businesses and aid relevant agencies. According to the scheme model, many inspection procedures under the new model are simplified thanks to the information source, the importer's database is concentrated on a single focal point that is the customs authority. When the goods are eligible for exemption from quality inspection or reduced inspection, the electronic customs system will automatically update, the importer does not have to apply for exemption or reduction as present; reducing many duplicates between customs dossiers and quality inspection dossiers.
