Members should be aware of the following scam, recently highlighted by Defra concerning ‘registration’ for Chinese customs (GACC):

Our Market Access team yesterday came across some fraudulent emails, whereby businesses are being prompted to pay up to £10,000 for ‘registration’ for Chinese customs (GACC). It all looks quite convincing, but please be advised that this is a scam:

  • China/GACC do not charge for registration/approval listing.
  • Exporters of meat, dairy and fish must follow the existing official UK procedures for registration via APHA/DAERA/Defra.
  • Other sectors that are required to self-register should only use  http://www.singlewindow.cn/.

 

Any further specific cases should be referred to the relevant Fraud Office.
