Guangzhou Switches to Online Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney System

As of 1 August, Guangzhou Customs will cease to accept printed versions of the Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney (Agreement), with all such procedures henceforward to be conducted online.

Details of the new arrangements can be found in the Circular on Fully Launching Electronic Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney and Customs Brokerage Agreement (No. 3 [2019]), with the key elements including:

  • When tasking a customs declaration enterprise with handling its customs formalities, the  consignor (or consignee) of the imported / exported goods must designate the broker via the Electronic Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney, which can be accessed through either the China E-Port  or the China International Trade Single Window.
  • The Electronic Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney must be signed between the customs declaration enterprise and the consignor (or consignee) of the imported / exported goods. The Electronic Customs Brokerage Power of Attorney (Agreement) generated at the time of import / export declaration should then be submitted (together with the import / export declaration form) via the customs clearance system.
