It was stated by the Deputy Director General of Vietnam Customs Hoang Viet Cuong at the online meeting for consultation on the Circular regulating the criteria for law compliance assessment of the enterprise in management of import and export and transit of goods held on 5th November 2018, at the General Department of Vietnam Customs’ headquarters.
Besides, the officials and leaders of 35 provincial and municipal Customs Departments participated in the online meeting.
At the meeting, the Director of the Customs Risk Management Department (under the General Department of Vietnam Customs) Quach Dang Hoa said that over the past time, the General Department of Vietnam Customs developed the draft circular regulating the criteria for law compliance assessment of the enterprise in management of import and export and transit of goods.
The Circular was consulted by Customs units and some relevant units under the Ministry of Finance (the General Department of Vietnam Customs, the Inspectorate Department, and the Tax Policy Department). Basing on the comments by these units, the Customs Risk Management Department supplemented and amended the draft circular for the second time.
The questions by provincial and municipal Customs Departments (Hai Phong, Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai, Binh Phuoc, Binh Duong …) were answered by the Director of the Customs Risk Management Department Quach Dang Hoa. Previously, the written comments by these departments were received, amended and supplemented in the draft Circular.
At the meeting, discussed contents were mainly criteria on compliance assessment; compliance assessment of the enterprise and verification of compliance assessment results of the enterprise; collection and analysis of information and application of IT system for the law compliance assessment.
The Deputy Director General of Vietnam Customs Hoang Viet Cuong emphasized that the development of the Circular was the fundamental change in risk management. Because all the directions, principles of implementation and criteria for classification were consistent with standards of the World Customs Organization and international practices and requirements of the Government, Customs Law, Decree 08, Decree 59 and Circular 39.
Regarding the information, the collection, verification, assessment and the method of information exchange played an important role. First of all, the Customs needed to take the initiative to collect information inside and outside the Finance sector and issue a mechanism for the enterprise to voluntarily provide information.
“The more information the enterprise provides, the more basic the Customs authority gain to assess the law compliance”. The Deputy Director General emphasized.
