According to the drafting committee, the current regulations have not specifically guided the responsibility of coordination and information exchange between port depot and warehouse operators with Customs authority.

The current regulations do not specify that when goods are brought into the port, stored and taken out of Customs supervision area, the port, depot and warehouse operators must check, update and send what information to the Customs; and what information the Customs office must provide to the operators, or when the system encounters problems, etc.

The current regulations do not specify specialized cases (transshipment, transit, change of export border gates, partial export goods, returned goods to inland, failure to declaration registration, etc).

Accordingly, The Circular amending and supplementing Circular No. 38/2015 / TT-BTC amends Article 52 on Customs supervision of import goods across a supervision area which has connected with the system; At the same time adding Article 52a on supervision of export goods across the supervision area which has connected with the system; Article 52b on Customs supervision of other cases; Article 52c on Customs supervision of import and export goods across the supervision area which has not connected with the system; Article 52d on the suspension to take goods across the customs supervision area; and Article 52đ on coordination and information exchange or when the system encounters problems

The important point to be amended and supplemented in the Circular is that when implementing to receive goods, the customs declarant does not have to present paper documents to Customs officers to check and certify the eligibility of goods across the supervision area.

Concurrently, concretizing the responsibilities of the parties (the declarants, port, depot and warehouse operators and Customs authority) in each stage: Before taking goods to the supervision area, and during the loading and unloading of goods to take them to supervision; during the storing of goods at the supervision area; and after taking goods out of the supervision area.

Regarding this issue, the General Department of Customs is currently implementing an automated system for Customs supervision at some local Customs units (Hai Phong, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Ba Ria-Vung Tau) and have brought efficiency in the management, supervision of goods in and out of warehouses, ports and depots.
