Circular of the General Office of the General Administration of Customs on the Administration of Imported Materials and Parts by Enterprises with Foreign Investment
ShuBanShui  No.132
April 6, 2000
Guangdong Customs and all customs directly under the General Administration of Customs:
According to reports from port customs houses, various competent customs authorities practice supervision on domestically sold materials of enterprises with foreign investment in different ways, either by issuing upon verification the Registration Manual, or by issuing the Certificate of Duty Levy/Exemption to facilitate enterprises going through relevant procedures, or by writing the examination result directly on the report presented by the enterprise for approval with which it can go through relevant procedures at the port customs house. Such inconsistency has made the work difficult for port customs houses. In order to uniform operation and standardize administration, the following is hereby notified:
In the spirit of the Circular on Printing and Distributing the Interim Measures for the Examination and Approval of Bonded Materials and Parts of Processing Trade Imported and Sold Domestically" (WaiJingMaoGuanFa  No.315), in applying for a domestic selling of its imported materials and parts, the enterprise with foreign investment shall provide the relevant customs with the approval document issued by the competent foreign trade and economic authority. If the imported materials and parts are under licensing administration, the enterprise shall provide the license at the same time.
Pursuant to the Circular of the General Administration of Customs on Promoting the Use of the Computerized Administrative System of Bonded Processing (ShuJian  No. 533), the administration over materials and parts imported by enterprises with foreign investment for producing products to be sold domestically shall be reflected in the issuance upon verification of the A Manual. All customs shall strictly observe the provisions provided in the document coded ShuJian  No.533, and shall, upon receiving this Circular, extend the administrative scope of the transmission of contract documents for record between different locations to cover materials and parts imported by enterprises with foreign investment through an otherwise located customs port for producing products to be sold domestically. The port customs house shall handle the enterprises' customs entry procedures only upon completion of the examination and verification of the computerized transmission data.
