Q: Our Company is in Nansha, Guangzhou. Please Tell Us How We Can Handle the “Internet + Advance Classification and Price Appraisal” Procedure.
A: “Internet + advance classification and price appraisal” is a customs clearance facilitation measure adopted by Guangzhou customs since 25 October 2015 at Nansha customs office under its jurisdiction. Qualified enterprises may submit application through the customs’ dedicated online mailbox.
1. All customs-registered enterprises making customs declaration to Nansha customs office (the codes of ports of declaration include 5106, 5165, 5166, 5167, 5168, 5169) may submit their customs declaration information to the customs office online. Enterprises can download and install the online customs declaration software from the main page of Guangzhou customs’ website, where they can obtain a software activation code online and make customs declaration free of charge;
2. Customs will send inspection notices to enterprises through the Internet. During customs inspection, for enterprises sending their staff on site, inspection will be carried out according to the existing inspection mode. But for enterprises not sending their staff on site, a customs-supervised venue operator or inspection service operator may be commissioned to act as their agent. The agent will be on site to assist in inspection and sign to endorse the inspection record. When this process becomes mature, customs will send the inspection results to the enterprise concerned via the Internet for the enterprise’s confirmation online. Should any problems be found during inspection, the enterprise concerned will be notified to send staff on site to handle.
