Re: Management of import of scrap into Vietnam

Hanoi, July 17, 2018

 

To: Customs Departments of provinces and cities

Recently, trading and import of scrap in our country have been on a sharp increase, changed complicatedly and caused annoyance to the public. Through monitoring, inspection, supervision and investigation of goods, it has been found that importing enterprises carry out certain fraudulent acts and schemes upon import of scrap such as falsifying, erasing or altering documents and certificates of conformity to environmental protection regulations for import of scrap for production purposes (hereinafter referred to as “certificates of conformity”) in order to legalize the documents required for import of scrap, providing names and HS codes of goods inconsistent with those of scrap in the list issued together with Decision No.73/2014/QD-TTg dated December 19, 2014 of the Prime Minister and collecting, at their discretion, samples used for testing to obtain the testing results proving that the imported goods are not scrap in pursuit of evading scrap management policies or importing waste shipments into Vietnam but refusing to receive such shipments and leave them backlogged in the seaports for gain from overseas entities (by turning Vietnam into a waste dump). As for that reason, for the purpose of preventing the above-mentioned acts, not letting Vietnam become the landfill of the world, saving costs of disposal of scrap and waste imports and implementing the regulation on customs inspection as prescribed in Article 31, 32, 33 and 34 of the 2014 Customs Law, sanctions prescribed in Decree No.45/2016/ND-CP on amendments to Decree No.127/2013/ND-CP which prescribes penalties for administrative violations and enforcement of administrative decisions on customs and the law on environmental protection, and following the guidelines of the Prime Minister given in Official Dispatch No.5290/VPCP-KTTH dated June 05, 2018 regarding strict management of scrap imported into Vietnam, the General Department of Vietnam Customs instructs Customs Departments of provinces and cities to carry out the following tasks:
