VIETNAM: ELVIS System To Be Adopted In March
The system, known as ELVIS, allows foreign governments to electronically transmit to the US details of shipments of quota-controlled goods heading for the States.
Its introduction, the trade ministry said, would help streamline Vietnam's textile and apparel exports under quotas to the US, helping to prevent illegal shipments in the process.
Previously, export visas, certificates of origin, export licences and other documents had all been faked to abuse Vietnamese quotas, with information about shipments not reaching US Customs in time.
Under ELVIS, however, data on shipments can be transmitted from the ministry to US Customs in a matter of days, preventing such misuses.
The implementation of the system is the result of almost six months' worth of negotiations between the two countries.
