In case of necessity, the company should contact directly the Customs office where procedures are carried out for specific instructions. There are no regulations on “average materials” Many businesses encounter problems in determining type and product codes. Some export processing enterprises said that the enterprise produces many products, including electric inflatable products with many different voltages and capacities, to facilitate management and how is the declaration made?
