Specialized inspection procedures have raised difficulties for export import companies

Specialized inspection procedures have raised difficulties for export import companies

The working group has been established to inspect how ministries have conducted specialized inspections on export import goods.
According to the group, 13 ministries have completed only 64 out of 98 assigned tasks so far. It has spotted a slew of limitations and problems in inspection operations of the ministries such as the high ratio of overlapped and conflict regulations.
One commodity is managed by many documents and must undergo specialized inspection procedures by many ministries. The ratio of one commodity undergoing 2-3 specialized inspection procedures approximates 58 percent now.
Inspection and management methods have not accorded with international standards, lengthening cargo customs clearance time. Nearly 100,000 items must experience specialized inspections right at border gates during customs clearance with the ratio of spotted violation being less than 0.1 percent.
That has raised difficulties, inconveniences and costs for businesses. Annually they must pay VND14,300 (US$629.21 million) to implement regulations and procedures on specialized inspections.
