Moreover, recently, some enterprises were using incorrect growing-area codes and codes of packing establishments. They even "borrowed" and impersonated codes of other establishments to complete export documents.
Therefore, the ministry requires provinces to inspect, evaluate, and review the entire status of code-granted growing areas and packing facilities, then send detailed reports to the Department of Plant Protection under the MARD before September 20. It requests provinces to actively monitor code-granted growing areas and packing establishments to prevent improper use of codes.
As for the Department of Plant Protection, the MARD requests it to guide provinces in the management and supervision on the granted codes, inform provinces, organizations, and individuals about the regulations of import markets, especially the Chinese market. For the Department of Crop Production and the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority, they must coordinate with the Department of Plant Protection and provinces to deal with problems arising in the use of granted codes.
