The Risks of Committing the Crime of “Smuggling” to Enterprises During the Process of Importation of Goods

In the course of their operations, enterprises in Vietnam have developed a high demand for imported machinery, equipment, materials, components, and accessories. to enhance their operations, production and business.  Perhaps not surprisingly, when it comes to importing goods the vast majority of manufacturing enterprises have no expertise in the fields of customs and importation.  If an imported asset is required, such businesses frequently delegate the task to their employees to carry out customs declaration procedures to the best of their knowledge or seek out customs agents to implement these procedures.  It goes without saying that these enterprises lack the mechanisms to manage and control the risks posed by their employees or customs agents’ actions throughout the importation process.  As a result, numerous companies have been sanctioned for administrative violations, or legal representatives and/or employees involved in the customs declaration procedures have faced the criminal liability for the crime of “Smuggling” as a result of non-compliance with customs declaration.

This seminar intends to arm enterprises with legal knowledge in the field of goods importation.  We will also offer solutions to help you manage, control risks and minimize the danger of committing the crime of “Smuggling” when assigning employees or customs agents the duty of completing the customs declaration process when importing goods.
