Posted: 23/6/2022 8:14:14 AM | Latest updated: 13/7/2022 3:02:57 PM (GMT+7) | LuatVietnam: 5483 | Vietlaw: 569

The General Department of Vietnam Customs assumes that there is not enough ground to classify non-woven fabric if enterprise only declares that this is the goods item of the same foreign manufacture of the goods that have been granted assessment analysis results.

In order to correctly classify this goods item, the enterprise has to base on technical documents, table of composition analysis of manufacturer, actual goods, etc. to well determine that this is non-woven fabric made of man-made filaments or staple fibres or other fibres, whether it is impregnated, coated, covered or laminated or not, color, weight, size, etc. and compare it with the description at the List of imports, exports of Vietnam to declare suitable HS code.
