China Scraps Customs Clearance Manifests in Favour of Online Processing
As of 1 June 2018, the use of Customs Clearance Manifests for inbound / outbound cargo has been scrapped in line with a new directive from the General Administration of Customs (GAC). The Manifests have been replaced by a new streamlined system designed to optimise import/export procedures.
In the case of inbound cargo, importers can now make the required customs declaration via either the integrated customs declaration and inspection Single Window system or the Internet+ Customs facility. For outbound cargo, it is now only necessary for the exporter to detail its electronic data account number and the goods’ Code B status on the relevant electronic inspection declaration receipt.
