ST&R PLANS RECOMMENDATIONS TO UNDP TO HELP MODERNIZE CHINA CUSTOMS
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg is requesting input from the shipping industry to develop proposed changes that will impact China Customs’ import and export activities.
The law firm has been retained as a consultant on these reforms by the United Nations Development Program through China Customs. The Chinese government plans to adopt new customs regulations as part of its admittance to the World Trade Organization.
Some of the areas of the reform effort that ST&R would like the industry’s views include customs valuation; customs border enforcement of intellectual property rights, rules of origin, administrative ruling process, customs bonds, and customs brokerage.
ST&R will accept industry comments through Oct. 31. For more information, contact Zhaokang Jiang at (202) 216-9307.
