China: New Integrated Declaration System

On August 1, customs authorities of the People’s Republic of China debuted a new integrated declaration system for imports and exports. Previous customs declaration and inspection declaration forms have now been merged into a new, single customs declaration system. A one-time declaration is now required at customs that also involves some additional attached documents and a set of parameter codes.

The integrated declaration system is an important step in the reform of China Customs' practices. Through integration, a total of 229 items of customs declaration and inspection were reduced to 105. Moreover, the original 74 accompanying documents were consolidated into 10 items, while 102 regulatory documents were reduced to 64 items. At the same time, customs authorities in China created new customs declaration forms to better meet international standards.
