Customs will launch a special campaign to "crack down on false and concealed import and export of dangerous goods"
In 2023, the Customs will carry out the "Special Action to Combat False and Concealed Declarations of Imported and Exported Dangerous Goods", improve the long-term mechanism, expand the pilot reform of the inspection and supervision model step by step, strengthen evaluation, improve relevant supporting systems, and ensure port safety.
In recent years, accidents such as explosions and fires of dangerous goods on ships have occurred from time to time due to reasons such as cargo concealment and misdeclaration. Once the concealment, false reporting, or omission of dangerous goods is seized, the person involved will not only face a huge fine, but in serious cases will bear criminal responsibility.
Under strict maritime investigations by the customs and heavy fines imposed by shipping companies, major ports still frequently seized dangerous goods and concealed major cases, and many relevant responsible persons have been taken criminal coercive measures.
Once again, once the concealment of dangerous goods is seized, the companies involved will not only face huge fines, but serious cases will bear criminal responsibility. Cargo owners, freight forwarders, customs brokers and other related companies will be implicated. It can be described as an act of harming others and oneself! Dear freight forwarders, forward this content to customers, and remind customers! ! !
