VIETNAM: Toys and Home Appliances Among 114 Products Freed from Pre-Import Quality Inspection
In a bid to reduce custom clearance time for 114 imported products, the Vietnamese government announced to free them from undergoing pre-import quality inspection. Under the measure which takes effect from 5 October, the listed products will only be inspected once they have been imported into Vietnam.
These products, which are currently subjected to both pre- and post-import checks, include toys for children under three years; home appliances such as electric kettles, cookers, ovens, pans and grills; irons; protective headgear; medical equipment; and instant seafood.
