Title: Unit 1 What Is China Customs


1
  • Unit 1 What Is China Customs
  • 1.1 China Customs Organizations, Functions and
    Tasks
  • 1.1.1 Customs General Administration
  • The introduction of Customs General
    Administration
  • The Customs General Administration was
    founded by the State Council on Oct. 25, 1949.
    Located in Beijing, the Customs General
    Administration now consists of altogether 11
    departments and offices.
  • The main task of the Customs General
    Administration
  • Under the leadership of the State Council, to
    lead and organize Customs offices throughout the
    country in the enforcement of the Customs Law
    and related state policies and regulations, and
    in the promotion and protection of socialist
    modernization.
  • The main functions of the Customs General
    Administration

    vocational training and appointments and removals
    of directors of Customs offices throughout the
    country and to exercise leadership in Customs

3
  • The introduction of Customs Establishments
  • The Customs Establishment is set up by State
    at ports opening to foreign countries and at
    places which call for concentrated Customs
    operation. With the development of Chinas
    external economy and trade, as well as Chinas
    further opening to the outside world more and
    more Customs Establishments are set up.
  • The main task of the Customs Establishments
  • (1) To collect Customs duties and other taxes
    and fees.
  • (2) To exercise supervision and control over
    inward and outward goods and means of transport,
    passengers luggage and personal postal articles.
  • (3) To compile Customs statistics and deal
    with other Customs matters.
  • (4) To prevent and counter smuggling.
  • 1.2 Customs Officer and the Passengers Baggage
    Examination
  • 1.2.1 Appearance and Image
  • Wearing the smart, coordinated Customs
    uniforms, male and female Customs officers
    examine the declaration forms, check passengers
    and baggage and search hand baggage in the
    Customs Inspection Room. Mindful of their role in
    enforcement of Customs law, not only regarding
    Customs, but of China as well, Customs officers
    take great pride in their appearance.

4
A Customs officer meets hundreds of
passengers in a workday. In each of these
passengers minds, the Customs officer is
creating images of himself and the organization
he represents. The image of the Customs officer
is enhanced by his appearance, style, courteous
actions, conduct, and safety procedures all are
part of his responsibilities. 1.2.2 Friendly
Attitude and Good Judgment The Customs
officers attitude can be the factor which
controls such potentially explosive situations.
Through his attitude, the Customs officer can
impress passengers with the authority and
formality of the inspection procedure, while
conveying sincere interest in and understanding
of the passengers problems. A Customs officers
friendly relaxed attitude can relieve the honest
passengers apprehensions and tensions, and
generally have a calming effect. The prudent
law enforcement officer bases his actions upon
knowledge gained from education, training, and
experience in the law enforcement field. As a
Customs officer, he will become more secure in
making judgment as he better understands the law
requires and how it is to be applied. 1.2.3
Passenger Processing Most Customs officers
(Customs inspectors), particularly new Customs
officers, spend the vast majority of their time
processing passengers.
5
The Customs officer is required to
courteously process the clearance of people and
their baggage and, at the same time, apprehend
those persons violating the Customs law and
related laws. 1.2.4 Intelligence
Intelligence is information about an individual
or a situation, which indicates the possibility
that a violation may occur. The passengers
appearance, conduct and reaction to questioning
contain vital information to aid in determining
the extent of the examination required. 1.2.5
Questioning and Tact The inspectional
procedure is filled with an overabundance of
situations, in which the judicious use of tact
can make the inspection less difficult, and
minimize the probability of complaints from the
passengers. To build a foundation for
passenger examination, the Customs will borrow a
method long used in journalism. The method is
referred to as the five Ws. Those five Ws are
WHO, WHERE, WHEN, WHAT and WHY, not necessarily
in that order. Sometimes, for good measure, HOW
is thrown in.
6
In asking these questions, the Customs
officer must ultimately be working towards a
goal, determining whether or not there is a high
likelihood that the passenger is carrying
narcotics, undeclared merchandise, fraudulently
invoiced merchandise, prohibited agricultural
products. Or if he is in violation of one of the
many laws Customs is required to enforce. For
this purpose, the Customs officer must develop
geometric questioning asking questions in such a
manner that build one upon the other. Unit 2 How
Does Customs Supervise and Control 2.1 Customs
Supervision and Control over Imports and
Exports 2.1.1 How does Customs Supervise and
Control over Imported and Exported cargo
Imported and exported cargo, except where
specially relieved, is subject to the necessary
Customs examination. During the course of the
examination Customs must check that the shipping
marks, number of packages, weight, specifications
of the cargo, and trading country correspond
(agree) with those on the licenses that the
cargo accords with relevant regulations on
foreign trade that there is no damage to or loss
of cargo that the quality and packing of
exported goods are up to requirements and that
there are no irregularities daring loading,
discharging or storing.
7
Important exports, after being examined and
found to be in accord with the regulation may be
released (set free) with the relative documents
signed and sealed by Customs, against which the
delivery or shipment of the cargo may be made
between the cargo-owner and the harbor, airport,
railway station, post office or other unit
concerned. Any import or export cargo not in
conformity with the stipulations may not be
released and will fall to be disposed of by
Customs according to the regulations. As for
exports, Customs, in conjunction with the
Commodity Inspection Bureau whose prime function
this is, must pay strict attention to the quality
of the goods to be exported so as to maintain the
good prestige of China in foreign trade. Behind
the busy activity of unloading or loading a ship
or aircraft, opportunities arise with the
potential for developing into violations of the
Chinese Customs code. 2.1.2 How does Customs
Supervise and Control over Incoming and Outgoing
Ships Incoming and outgoing means of
transport, such as vessels, trains, civil
aircrafts and vehicles must be placed under
Customs supervision and control. On entering or
leaving the Chinese territory, they must submit
declaration to Customs may the cargo be
discharged or loaded and the conveyance may
continue on its way to other Chinese open ports
or sail abroad. The supervision and control of
means of transport is one of the main tasks of
the Chinese Customs.
8
On arrival of a ship from abroad at anchorage
or at wharf, the Quarantine officers will go on
board the ship to see there are no infectious
diseases being found on the ship. While on board
the joint inspection party works as a unit, but
each member of party carries out their respective
duties. In order to satisfy the need of the open
door policy adopted by China, the procedure of
the joint inspection has been simplified. The
main duty of the Customs is to see if the ship
has got the required ships papers and to collect
them to see if her cargo is in good order, and
to find out the ship is involved in any smuggling
or any other unlawful activities. The first duty
in the control of ships is to collect specified
documents and papers. Import and export
goods are subject to examination. During the
course of such examination, Customs must check
that the shipping mark, number of package,
weight, specifications of the goods and trading
country correspond to those on the licenses that
the cargo accords with relevant regulations on
foreign trade that there is no damage to or loss
of cargo that the quality and packing of the
export goods are up to requirements and that
there are no irregularities during loading,
discharging or shoring. 2.2 Customs Control over
Manufacture in Bond for Export If imported
materials are taken into a bonded warehouse for
storage, without payment of duty, the storage
must be under customs control. That is the
warehouse must be one authorized by the customs.
In the same way, the customs authorities must
have suitable control throughout if imported
materials are taken into a bonded warehouse for
manufacturing export products.
9
If such customs control is strictly enforced
it may involve some of the following functions
customs supervision of the transfer of imported
materials on which duty has not been paid from
the docks to the bonded warehouse Customs
control over access to the raw materials,
finished goods and any intermediate materials
including wastes stored in the warehouse and the
physical supervision by customs of the
exportation of other means of disposal of the
finished products and other goods arising from
the process of manufacture in bond. Unit 3 What
Is International Trade Terms 3.1 Role of
International Trade Terms 3.1.1 Introduction to
Trade Terms Trade terms are also referred to
as price terms or delivery terms. Trade terms
are a set of uniform rules codifying the
interpretation of trade terms defining the price
composition and the rights and obligations of the
buyer and the seller in international
transactions. Every commercial transaction is
based upon a sales contract, and the trade terms
used in the contract have the important function
of naming the exact point at which the ownership
of the merchandise is transferred from the seller
to the buyer.
10
  • 3.1.2 The Role of International Trade Terms in
    International Trade
  • It is beneficial to buyers and sellers of
    negotiating transaction and concluding contract
  • Because each trade term has its specific
    meaning, therefore, as long as the parties agreed
    on the trade term, it is also defining the
    responsibility, costs and risks which lie in the
    cargo landing-over and who are responsible for
    them.
  • It is beneficial to buyers and sellers of
    accounting the price and cost
  • As trade terms express the components of
    price, so both buyers and sellers must consider
    the cost of subordination included in the trade
    term which is adopted when parties determine the
    concluded price.
  • It is helping to resolve disputes in the contract
  • If buyer and sellers have the lack of
    consideration for the terms of the contract, so
    that certain matters shall not clear or
    incomplete, resulting in the dispute of
    performance can not be resolved based on the
    provisions of the contract, in this case, could
    invoke the general explaining of relevant trade
    terms to deal with it, when they negotiating
    contracts.
  • It is beneficial to other organizations
  • It is beneficial to organizations of carrying out
    operational activities, with the appearance of
    trade terms and international usages which
    explaining them, they provide an objective basis

11
  • and favorable conditions for organizations about
    dealing with the issues exist in the practice and
    carrying out operational activities.
  • 3.2 International Trade Usages
  • 3.2.1 Where Is International Trade Usages from?
  • In international trade business practice,
    because of each national legal systems, trade
    practices are different, so there are differences
    in understanding and operating each trade term
    that easily lead to trade disputes.
  • 3.2.2 Understanding Incoterms
  • Why Incoterms?
  • Incoterms are international rules that are
    accepted by governments, legal authorities and
    practitioners worldwide for the interpretation of
    the most commonly used terms in international
    trade. They either reduce or remove altogether
    uncertainties arising from differing
    interpretations of such terms in different
    countries.
  • What do they cover?
  • The scope of Incoterms is limited to matters
    relating to the rights and obligations of the
    parties to the contract of sale with respect to
    the delivery of goods sold, but excluding
    intangibles like computer software.

12
  • What do they not deal with?
  • Although the Incoterms are widely used and
    exceedingly handy, they are not meant for every
    type of contract. Specifically, the terms used in
    a contract state exactly when the shipper unloads
    and relinquishes obligation, and when the buyer
    takes over for carriage and insurance.
  • 3.2.3 WarsawOxford Rules 1932
  • In 1928, the International Law Association
    held a meeting in Warsaw, and worked out the
    Uniform Rules for CIF Sales Contracts, which was
    called Warsaw Rules 1928, and renamed
    WarsawOxford Rules 1932 at the Oxford Convention
    and includes 21clauses. It is mainly use to
    indicate the nature and characteristic of the CIF
    contract and also to stipulate the
    responsibilities of the two parties under CIF
    terms.
  • 3.2.4 Revised American Foreign Trade Definitions
    1941
  • In 1919, nine American commercial groups drew
    up the US Export Quotations and Abbreviations in
    1919, then revised in 1941 and renamed Revised
    American Foreign Trade Definitions 1941. It was
    adopted by the American Commerce, the National
    Importers Association and the American Foreign
    Trade Association in the same year.

13
  • 3.2.5 International Rules for the Interpretation
    of Trade Terms
  • The purpose of Incoterms is to provide a set
    of international rules for the interpretation of
    most commonly used trade terms in foreign trade.
    Thus the uncertainties of different
    interpretations of such terms in different
    countries can be avoided or at least reduced to a
    considerable degree.
  • 3.3 A Guide to Incoterms 2000
  • 3.3.1 Explanation of Terms in Incoterms 2000
  • Incoterms 2000 aim at providing such a set of
    standardized terms which mean exactly the same to
    both parties to a contract and will be
    interpreted in exactly the same way by courts in
    every country. For the purpose of easier reading
    and understanding, a brief explanation will be
    given based on the below four groups
    respectively.

3.3.2 Explanation of Group E Under the E
term (EXW), the seller only makes the goods
available to the buyer at the sellers own
premises. It is the only one of that category.
EXW EX Works (named place) EXW means that
the seller fulfills his obligation to deliver
when he has made the goods available to the buyer
at his premises or another named place (i. e. ,
works, factory, warehouse, etc. ) not cleared for
export and not loaded on any collecting vehicle.
Title and risk pass to the buyer including
payment of all transportation and insurance costs
from the sellers door. 3.3.3 Explanation of
Group F Under the F terms (FCA, FAS and
FOB), the seller is called upon to deliver the
goods to a carrier appointed by the buyer.
FCA Free Carrier (named place) Title and
risk pass to the buyer including transportation
and insurance costs when the seller delivers
goods cleared for export to the carder nominated
by the buyer at the named place. It should be
noted that the chosen place of delivery has an
impact on the obligations of loading and
unloading the goods at that place. If delivery
occurs at the sellers premises, the seller is
responsible for loading. If delivery is at any
other place, the seller is not responsible for
unloading. This term may be used for any mode of
transport.
16
FAS Free Alongside Ship(named port of shipment)
Title and risk pass to the buyer including
payment of all transportation and insurance cost
when the goods are placed alongside the vessel at
the named port of shipment by the seller. The
export clearance obligation rests with the
seller. This is a reversal from previous
Incoterms versions which required the buyer to
arrange for export clearance. However, if the
parties wish the buyer to clear the goods for
export, this should be made clear by adding
explicit wording to this effect in the contract
of sale. FOB Free on Board(named port of
shipment) Title and risk pass to buyer
including payment of all transportation and
insurance cost when the goods pass the ships
rail at the named port of shipment. This means
that the buyer has to bear all costs and risks of
loss or damage to the goods from that point.
The FOB term requires the seller to clear the
goods for export. Used only for sea or inland
waterway transportation. The obligations of
the seller under the FOB contract may be
summarized as follows The seller is required
to (1) Supply conforming goods, packed
appropriately or in accordance with the contract,
and any documents confirming conformity which
have been agreed and supply a commercial invoice
or its electronic equivalent
17
(2) Deliver the goods to buyer by placing
them on board, that is over the rail of the
vessel which has been notified by the buyer, in
the manner which is usual or customary at that
port for such delivery, at the time agreed and
without delay give the buyer sufficient notice of
the fact (3) Place them on the vessel in
the position and manner required (4) Pay
any costs incidental to delivery of the goods
(5) Obtain an export license, if so required,
or any other document necessary for the
exportation of the goods and clear the goods
through customs (6) Provide proof of
delivery in the manner agreedprovide any
assistance requested by the buyer in respect of
obtaining documents facilitating export and
providing information to enable the goods to be
insured. The buyer is required to (1) Give
sufficient notice to the seller of the time and
location of the delivery having, presumably,
contracted for the carriage of the goods from the
port of shipment, bear any costs occasioned by
his failure to do so and bear the risk of loss or
damage to the goods from the time they pass over
the ship s rail (2) Obtain any appropriate
licenses, authorizations for the import of the
goods, and comply with customs formalities for
importation whether in the country of destination
of in a country of transit (3) Pay any
costs incidental to the importation of the goods,
bear the risk in those goods from the time of
their delivery and bear the costs of the
provision of assistance by the seller at the
request of the buyer
18
(4) Pay for the goods. However, as the
loading of the goods is a continuous process, it
is hard to used ships rail as a point to divide
responsibilities and costs. 3.3.4 Explanation of
Group C Under the C terms (CFR, CIF, CPT
and CIP), the seller has to contract for
carriage. But without assuming the risk of loss
or of damage to the goods or additional costs due
to events occurring after shipment or dispatch.
CFR Cost and Freight (named port of
destination) The seller delivers when the
goods pass the ships rail in the port of
shipment. The seller must pay the costs and
freight necessary to bring the goods to the named
port of destination but the risk of loss or
damage to the goods, as well as any additional
costs due to events occurring after the time of
delivery, are transferred from the seller to the
buyer. CIF Cost, Insurance, and Freight(named
port of destination) The seller delivers when
the goods pass the ships rail in the port of
shipment. The seller must pay the costs and
freight necessary to bring the goods to the named
port of destination but the risk of loss of or
damage to the goods, as well as any additional
costs due to events occurring after the time of
delivery, are transferred from the seller to the
buyer.
19
This term requires the seller to clear the goods
for export. The sellers obligations under a CIF
contract may be summarized as follows (1)
To ship goods of the description contained in the
contract and clear the goods for export or to buy
conforming goods afloat (2) If the goods
are not bought afloat, to procure a contract of
carriage by sea under which the goods will be
deliveried at the destination agreed by the
contract and obtain the bill of lading as
evidence of having done so (3) To arrange,
if this has not already been done, insurance on
terms current in the trade which will be
available for the benefit of the buyer and
provide a policy or insurance document which
entitles the buyer to make a claim against the
insurer (4) To make out an invoice which
normally will debit the buyer with the agreed
price, or the actual cost, commission charges,
freight and insurance premium, and credit him for
the amount of the freight which he will have to
pay to the ship owner on delivery of the goods at
the port of destination (5) To tender these
documents in the manner agreed whether by
presentation directly, transmission by electronic
means or otherwise, the bill of lading, insurance
policy and invoice to the buyer, together with
any other documents which may be agreed between
the parties and/or might be required by the
customs of the trade so that he may obtain
delivery of the goods or recover for their loss,
if they are lost on the voyage, and know what
freight he has to pay.
20
The duties of the buyer may be summarized as
follows (1) To accept the documents when
tendered by the seller, if they are in conformity
with the contract of sale, and pay the contract
price (2) To receive the goods at the
agreed port of destination and bear, with the
exception of the freight and marine insurance,
all costs and charges incurred in respect of the
goods in the course of their transit by sea until
their arrival at the port of destination, as well
as unloading costs, including lighterage and
wharfage charges (3) If war insurance is to
be provided, to bear the cost (4) To bear
all risks of the goods from the time when they
shall have effectively passed the ships rail at
the port of shipment (5) If the buyer has
reserved to himself the right to determine the
period within which the goods are to be shipped
and/or the right to choose the port of
destination, he must bear the additional costs
incurred as a result and all risks of the goods
from the date of the expiry of the period fixed
for shipment, provided always that the goods have
been appropriated to the contract, that is to
say, clearly set aside or otherwise identified as
the contract goods (6) To pay the costs and
charges incurred in obtaining the certificate of
origin and consular documents (7) To pay
all Customs duties as well as any other duties
and taxes payable consequent upon the
importation (8) To obtain and provide at
his own risk and expense any import license or
permit or the like which he may require for the
importation of the goods at destination.
21
CPT Carriage Paid to(named port of
destination) Risk and insurance cost pass to

the goods have been so delivered. The seller also
has to procure insurance against the buyers risk
of loss or damage to the goods during the
carriage. It is used for any mode of
transportation. 3.3.5 Explanation of Group D

and Quotation 4.1 Introduction to Inquiry and
Quotation 4.1.1 What Is Inquiry?
24
An inquiry is a request for the trade terms
of certain commodity. When the buyer intends to
import, he may send out an inquiry to an
exporter, inviting a quotation or an offer for
the goods he wishes to buy or simply asking for
some general information about these goods.
Inquiries may be made by letter, telegram, telex
or fax or even by telephone or through
face-to-face talk. Since the 1990s, inquiries
made by E-mail have been on the increase. When
making an inquiry, keep it brief, specific, clear
and to the point say what needs to be said and
ask what to be asked and then stop. 4.1.2 What
Is Quotation? Quoting a price for a product
is a vital part of the business process. Since
inquiries represent a great source of business,
the answers to them should be prompt, polite and
helpful. When you give a quotation, you should
first thank the inquirer for his/her inquiry,
mention the date of his inquiry and quote any
other references that appear. Give the
information fully. Finally express the hope of a
lasting friendly business relationship so as to
create goodwill and leave good impression on the
customer.

  • Unit 6 How Many Agreements Are Concerning Customs
    Brokerage
  • 6.1 Introduction to Agent and Agency Agreement
  • 6.1.1 Why Do We Have Agent?
  • In international trade, a lot of business
    work is handled not only by direct negotiations
    between buyers and sellers, but also by means of
    agencies. When a company seeks to develop its
    markets in other countries, it often resorts to
    the help of agents, who will be employed to
    represent the company to sell its products in a
    given area too distant to be effectively covered
    by the company itself.
  • An agent to be appointed should have
    sufficient means to develop the trade and have
    reliable connections in the designated area.
  • 6.1.2 The Types of Agency
  • As far as buying and selling are concerned,
    there are mainly two types of agents
  • General agent (or commission agent) A general
    agent may be a firm or a person who acts under
    some degree of instructions from his principals
    to sell (or to buy) goods on the best terms
    obtainable. Then he charges a commission for his
    service under some kind of agreement or contract.

60
  • Sole agent (or exclusive agent) A sole agent may
    also be a firm or a person who acts exclusively
    for one foreign principal with sole or exclusive
    agency rights to sell on a commission basis
    certain commodities in a certain districts under
    some kind of agreement or contract.
  • 6.1.3 What Is Agency Agreement
  • Our import and export corporations usually
    appointed some films in foreign countries to act
    as their agent to sell goods produced or
    manufactured in our country. The terms of agency
    can be set out in correspondence between the
    parties concerned, but when dealings are on a
    large scale, a formal agency agreement may be
    desirable. The agreement, of course, may be
    drafted by one of the parties in consultation
    with the other.
  • 6.2 Freight Agency Agreement

  • This agreement is entered into by Sea Tiger, 200
    lighting way, secaucus, New York 08095 USA (
    hereafter known as STL), and _____________(hereaft
