Despite achieving strong results, according to Ba Ria-Vung Tau Customs Department, post-clearance audits at the unit still face some difficulties.
According to the regulation of rotation of the working position of the sector, leading to not ensuring the expert of customs officials who performed task of post-clearance audit, affecting the qualifications and experience in the process of professional performance, especially in price and C/O.
In addition, import and export goods implementing procedures in the province are not diverse and the size of enterprises is mainly small and medium. A few large-scale enterprises in recent years have implemented post clearance audit by the unit so it leads to limiting sources of post-clearance audits in the following years.
