On January 12, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has signed Decision 38/QĐ-TTg approving the scheme on reforming the model of quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods. The main goal of the scheme is to facilitate procedures, reduce the time and compliance cost for the business; protect the legitimate rights and interests of business organisations and individuals and consumers, as well as to improve the efficiency of quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods.

In Resolution No. 02/NQ-CP dated January 1, 2020 and Resolution No. 99/NQ-CP dated November 13, 2019, the Government assigned the Ministry of Finance to responsibility for elaborating a scheme on specialized inspection reform along the direction that customs offices are the focal point for specialized inspection at border gates (except for goods related to security, defense, quarantine), specialized management ministries carry out post-inspection; submit to the Government in the first quarter of 2020.

Following the direction of the Government, the Ministry of Finance has developed the scheme on reforming model of quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods. After more than a year of researching and working with concerned parties, The Ministry of Finance has set up a working team for implementing the Government’s direction on specialised inspection; the GDVC has also established a scheme drafting team. It has also held meetings with local and international experts, associations, businesses and researchers. It also reported to the Government Office and was received comments from ministries and sectors when building the scheme. In addition, the GDVC has researched and gained experience in the deployment of other countries to apply in Vietnam and develop quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods.

On January 12, the Prime Minister issued Decision 38/QD-TTg approving the scheme on reforming model of quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods with seven breakthrough reforms, including:  (1) Assigning Customs to be the focal point in quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods; (2) Synchronously applying three methods of inspection for both quality inspection and food safety inspection to reduce the number of imported consignments subject to inspection; (3) Simplifying quality control and food safety inspection procedures for imported goods; (4) Inspecting by goods to reduce number of consignments subject to inspection; (5) Fully and substantially applying risk management in quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods to ensure the role of state management and improve the compliance of the business; (6) Supplementing subjects exempted from quality inspection and food safety inspection; (7) Applying information technology systems for the deployment of the new model.

With seven breakthrough reforms, the scheme will reduce administrative procedures, cut resources, reduce customs clearance time; help raise awareness of corporate responsibility in compliance with the law on quality, food safety of goods and safety protection for the community and consumers.

The Decree no. 38/QĐ-TTg takes effect from Jan 12, 2021. ​
