Warning businesses to be cautious about scams when exporting agricultural products to China

Recently, some Vietnamese agricultural export enterprises received requests from Chinese customers for Export Code and Certificates from the General Department of Customs of China and had to pay a fee of 100 - 1,000 USD to register for that certificate through two websites: www.gacc.app and www.aqsiq.net. Subjects showing signs of forgery and fraud were very sophisticated when using the English abbreviations of agencies under the General Department of Customs of China in the website address.

Faced with this information, the Vietnam SPS Office (Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development) affirmed that the General Department of Customs of China does not require this document and regulates online fee collection.

In addition, the SPS Vietnam office recommends that agricultural businesses be cautious when exporting goods to China. Specifically, businesses need to access official Chinese websites with the .cn extension to check registration results and look up information related to import and export activities. Besides, they must constantly be alert to unusual requests during trade with partners.

Mr. Ngo Xuan Nam - Deputy Director of SPS Vietnam Office said that according to the regulations of China and Vietnam Customs, there is no charge for issuing export codes and certificates to businesses. In case there is such a request from the customer, businesses are requested to contact directly the national focal point, the Vietnam SPS Office, which will be responsible for answering these regulations for them.

Soon, the SPS Vietnam Office plans to build a portal that will connect with businesses through apps for updates and two-way interaction to improve support for export businesses in the future.
