Module 3 Customs Compliance

The accreditation criterion, “Customs Compliance”, requires a company and its person in charge to possess good reputation, and strictly abide by the law. They shall have a clear record of Customs offences or other offences involving fraudulence, corruption or dishonesty in the past two years.

Prior to handing in an application to the Customs and Excise Department, an applicant must first submit a copy of Business Registrations of the premises it occupied. If the applicant is a limited company, then a copy of the Certificate of Incorporation and a copy of the most recent Annual Return must be submitted at the same time.

The person in charge of the company, that is, the director, partner or sole proprietor, shall declare the details of any criminal convictions to the Customs and Excise Department in writing.
