Let us discuss some of the objectives of customs control on Exports and Imports:


One of the main reasons of involvement of Customs is to ensure nothing goes out of the country against the laws of the land and customs authorities duly enforce stipulated prohibitions and restrictions regarding outward cargo. So the goods within a country should not be moved out of a country without the knowledge of government of an exporting country. Also the movement of goods in to a country also needs to be monitored by government of each importing country.


Another reason of customs control on import and export is to ensure authenticity of value of outward cargo according to the customs valuation rules to check over and under invoicing. Assessing value of goods is major objective of customs under both exports and imports.


One of the other objectives of customs control on import and export is to assess and realize export duty/cess/charge according to the customs Tariff Act and any other fiscal legislation.


In order to check that all the regulatory provisions of Export (Control) order, Export (quality Control and Inspection ) Act and Foreign exchange Regulations Act are duly compiled with, the involvement of Customs is a dare need. This is another objective of a customs department in each country under imports and exports.


One of the other objectives of Customs department is to provide export data through the customs returns.


While complying with the objectives, before granting permission, customs ensure that the goods exported are of the same type, sort and value as have been declared by the exporter and the duty or cess duty thereon is properly determined and paid by the exporter.
