The Directorate for Standards, Metrology, and Quality assumes that the case in which an enterprise imports packaging with pre-printed foreign origin to pack exported goods that meet origin criteria of Vietnam has sign of fraud of origin. Upon detecting, the authorities have the right to examine and handle according to regulations.

With regard to the case of import of packaging with pre-printed foreign origin together with packaging containers and products/semi-finished products with foreign origin to perform a processing contract, to pack goods for export, the Directorate for Standards, Metrology, and Quality assumes that the labeling for exported goods must not comply with Decree No. 43/2017/ND-CPstatus2 but it must conform to regulations of importing countries, contracts or treaties.

In addition, labels of exported goods must also truly and correctly present goods origin and must reflect correct nature of the goods.
