Chinese customs crackdown on smuggled used clothing
Oct '09
The Chinese General Administration of Customs and the National Comprehensive Management Office for Combat Smuggling are undertaking measures to combat smuggling of used clothes into domestic market.

General Administration of Customs has called upon all town and city administrators to thoroughly investigate the sources and means by which these used clothes are smuggled into the country.

All city councils are supposed to trace sources of used garment and find out entire smuggling chain of used clothes, so as to enhance the target and effect of these special crackdown activities.

Meanwhile, Customs will strengthen regulation on imports of solid waste and effectively prevent used clothing imports through concealed means and false reports. Smuggling of these goods is mainly done through sea and non-customs checkpoints.

General Administration of Customs says, it will step up efforts to investigate all cases, strictly crack down smuggling and criminal gangs and resolutely smash smuggling network. It will also monitor and strengthen investigations.

Till date, Customs have investigated 118 cases of solid smuggled waste, seized 20,000 tons of solid waste since 2007, among them, customs investigated 27 cases of used smuggled clothes and seized 1,667 tons of used clothes.
