The Need for Import and Export Certification Consulting

A Minimum Safeguard for
Import and Export Trade
Import products that are closely
related to national health and social
safety of our country are subject to
permissions and approvals by each
item pursuant to the individual law.
For cases where importer or exporter
fails to comply with the regulations
when importing or exporting goods,
the Korean Government has
prepared a safeguard for import and
export in individual laws.
Reinforcement of
Non-Tariff Barriers
With the revision of the Customs
Enforcement Checklist on April 19,
2018, about 120 items have been
added to the list, resulting total of
more than 7,300 items required to
be checked at the Customs
Enforcement stage. The expansion of
FTA lowers the tariff barriers in
Korea, while non-tariff barriers such
as checking import and export
requirements for goods
directly related to national health
and social safety are gradually
strengthening. Hence, it is very
important to check the import and
export requirement system for
importers and exporters when
importing and exporting goods.
Vast and Professional
Individual Laws
The integrated public notification
combines about 60 individual
statutes, items, import and export
requirements and procedures,
revisions, etc. submitted by the
heads of the relevant administrative
institutions. The head of Ministry of
Trade, Industry and Energy
integrated their export and import
tips and announced them in the
integrated public notification. The
content is so vast and professional
that it takes a professional help for
the public to understand and comply with it.

SEIN listens to the difficulties of verifying the requirements from our clients and took the lead in solving the difficulties
in interpreting individual laws, representing import and export permissions and quarantine services, and conducting
follow-up management through professional consulting.
