All goods for import and export trade need to be declared to the customs of both trading countries. What are the aspects of the professionalism of the customs declaration industry? Or what should you know when choose a custom broker?We will talk about it in this blog.
A customs declaration is a form that lists the details of goods that are being imported or exported when a citizen or visitor enters a customs territory (country's borders). Most countries require travellers to complete a customs declaration form when bringing notified goods (alcoholic drinks, tobacco products, animals, fresh food, plant material, seeds, soils, meats, and animal products) across international borders. Posting items via international mail also requires the sending party to complete a customs declaration form.

Under normal circumstances, because import and export companies lack professional customs personnel, they will choose to entrust a more professional and responsible customs declaration company to declare to the customs, and a small number of import and export companies will choose to handle import and export customs clearance procedures with the customs independently.

Most import and export companies choose to act as an agent for customs brokers or customs brokers. They will first consider the four issues of cost, process, timeliness and safety, and secondly consider the following conditions:

First, if it has AEO certification? Does it have the commodity knowledge and customs clearance experience of the company's import and export goods?

What is AEO certification?

The attack on USA on the 11th of September, 2011 lead to the tightening of security for imported goods around the world. Therefore, the concept of AEO was introduced by World Customs Organisation (WCO) to be adopted by different countries in connection to their national custom security measures.

An AEO is a concept that foster customs to business partnership. Basically, the AEO is involved in the international movement of goods that have been approved by the national customs authorities, as complying with the standards set by the WCO on the supply chain security.

Companies that do business internationally need to apply for the AEO certificate if they want to benefit from the advantages the certificate has to offer. Generally, the holders of AEO certificate get easier admittance to customs simplifications; are recognised as a secure and safe business partner; get improved relations with Customs and other government authorities; reduce the chances of loss of goods; get a lower inspection cost.

Second, the scale of the customs broker, the type of business they are good at, the professionalism and responsibility of the personnel, whether the customs broker can provide full service and the level of service for customers.

Third, what is the relationship between the customs broker and the customs? What is the reputation of the customs broker in the industry?

Currently, import and export companies choose customs brokers to consider whether they have a professional customs consultant team and a strong policy research team. Because the level of trade compliance of import and export companies will directly affect the convenience of import and export customs operations and cross-border supply chain operations.

If customs brokers can keep abreast of the latest laws and regulations and regulatory changes, carry out trade compliance risks, and help companies establish a strong pre-compliance internal control mechanism, regular post-event compliance audit mechanism, and trade risk handling plans to adapt and meet trade compliance regulatory and risk control requirements.
