The General Department of Vietnam Customs assumes that in case a warehouse outside an EPE meets the following conditions according to point a clause 1 Article 80 of Circular No. 38/2015/TT-BTCstatus2 , it is not required to have walls to separate goods of EPEs stored at the warehouse:

(1) have sturdy surround walls that separate the warehouse from the outside;

(2) goods stored in the warehouse only include goods of EPEs, without goods of normal enterprises;

(3) goods stored in the warehouse of EPEs must be separated and there are surveillance cameras that work during 24/24 hours in line with customs supervision and control requirements

However, the warehouse service provider must have management policies with regard to goods of each EPE when the goods are put in, taken out and stored in the warehouse.
