China Customs 20 Measures to Support Steady Foreign-Trade Growth
[Miao Yuexue]: We’ve already interpreted the20 measures issued this time previously. If you still have something unclear, please call the hotline12360 for consulting. 05/23/2014 11:39:51
[Netizen]: Our company wants to consult about the Bunker Adjustment Factor for sea transportation and wonders if some experts can look at our relevant materials. May I know how to contact our guests by phone or fax? Thanks so much. 05/23/2014 10:34:53
[Miao Yuexue]: Well, since we don’t know about your specific problem, I advise you to call our hotline 12360 for consulting and you will get useful guidance. 05/23/2014 11:40:13
[Netizen: E-commerce platform]: This year, GACC will work hard on developing the standard export version of cross-border e-commerce clearance management system and if successful, put it into use at the end of June. Will there be any qualification monitoring or access list for use of this system? 05/23/2014 11:24:40
[Miao Yuexue]: The standard export version of cross-border e-commerce clearance management system we are working on is open to serve all ports in China. In principle, as long as there is local need for it, with the cooperation of local customs, related supervision clearance premises can be set up in the place for e-commerce in export of retail goods, so there will be no access list for it. 05/23/2014 11:42:41
[Netizen]: Hello, dear guests and anchor. This is an enterprise within Qingdao Customs District and we have a question about the Fifth Item of Article 2 in Several Opinions on Promoting the Steady Growth of Foreign Trade; it reads: “to improve ‘one-time inspection’ for trade facilitation”. In the past, inspection of goods was done respectively by customs and bureau of quality supervision and inspection and thus involved two times of towing/unpacking inspection and correspondingly incurred two times of fees. Can you share with us when will these two departments really carry out “one-time inspection”? How will you cut down fees or simplify procedures for our enterprises? 05/23/2014 11:23:18
[Miao Yuexue]: We are currently negotiating with General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine on promoting the practice of one-time declaration, one-time inspection and one-time release. We are going to work together in inspecting cargos that require cooperative examination and quality inspection and will cut down relevant fees for enterprises as much as possible. 05/23/2014 11:43:53
[Netizen]: Throughout the country, Customs are working on lightening burdens for enterprises, but customs clearance procedures in Huizhou City, Guangdong remain unchanged. The so-called paperless clearance is actually not put into use at all. There is no difference from the past, and we even have to submit declaration forms on site; that’s more complex than before. And two platforms are used for endorsing manuals; that is a burden for our enterprises. Thank you! 05/23/2014 11:07:37
[Miao Yuexue]: Thanks for your question. There is surely some problem in our reform now. In order to further promote the reform of paperless clearance, GACC is taking two measures: the first is to simplify the attached documents of declaration form, and the second is to step up turning attached documents into e-documents. Therefore, GACC has specifically issued Announcement on Matters Concerning Further Progress of the Reform of Paperless Clearance, and we will strengthen our guidance and supervision for different local customs offices and ensure that they fully implement related measures to lighten burdens and increase efficiency for our enterprises. 05/23/2014 11:44:41
[Netizen]: At each economic downturn, various policies are issued by the government. To tell the truth, small and micro businesses like us have basically no access to these policies. 05/23/2014 10:33:34
