Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau urges Shenzhen port to increase imports of agricultural products steadil


Jun 21 2014

In order to further promote the stable growth of the foreign trade at the Shenzhen port, the Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, in accordance with the characteristics and development trends of the agricultural product trade, has taken various measures to promote the import trade of agricultural products at the Shenzhen port. Based on the rapid growth of last year's fast-growing agricultural products such as crude oil, frozen meat, and fruits at the Shenzhen Port, this year continues to maintain a substantial growth trend, with imports steadily leading the country. According to statistics, in the first five months of 2014, wheat, soybeans, rice, corn, and rapeseed imported through Shenzhen Port totaled 19.505 million tons, an increase of about 100% year-on-year; aquatic products such as salmon and lobster were 32,500 tons, a year-on-year increase of about twenty two%. 417,700 tons of fresh fruits, a year-on-year increase of 16%.
The first is to continue to innovate the system. On the basis of the full implementation of through-pass release and the implementation of the "intelligent order review, process customization, and automatic processing" classification and customs clearance model, we will deepen paperless inspections, electronic visas, and electronic clearance of customs clearance and other items, such as animal and plant quarantine approval, verification Paperless sales; establishment of a barrier-free customs clearance system for frozen meat entering the country to solve the problem of delays in port due to reasons such as permits that have not yet been approved.
The second is to continue to optimize the regulatory model. On the basis of risk assessment and enterprise commitments, the “frozen inspection” after the sampling of imported frozen meat was changed to “free-pass” to the designated cold storage after sampling, which greatly improved customs clearance efficiency.
The third is to continue to tap the potential of ports. Increase investment, continuously improve port on-site inspection facilities, strengthen personnel technical training, enhance port inspection and quarantine capabilities, and have been approved by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of 9 designated ports for imported fruits, 3 designated ports for seedlings, 3 frozen ports for entry On the basis of meat designated ports, 6 ports for imported raw grains and 5 designated ports for imported chilled aquatic products are being applied for examination and acceptance, which will further enhance the foreign trade competitiveness of Shenzhen ports.
The fourth is to continuously improve the detection speed. Continuously improve the detection speed by improving the sampling and perfecting the detection methods, such as reporting the results of the first layer samples of imported oil crops within 24 hours; implementing a rotating inspection mechanism with registered factories as the main body for imported salmon, and reducing the average inspection time by 20 -30% etc.
