Customs Valuation All goods sent to Malaysia must have a value and description provided, even samples and

gifts. Customs valuation for imports is based on the cost of the goods (in the open market), plus the cost of insurance, freight charges, commission and all other charges incidental to the purchase and delivery of the goods up to the place of payment of duty. Customs valuation for exports is based on the cost of the goods (in the open market) only. The government of Malaysia has proposed the adoption of the WTO Agreement on Customs Valuation method of determining customs value. Although the value of the Malaysian ringgit has been pegged at a fixed exchange rate of 3.80 (RM) to 1 (USD), all foreign currencies will be converted into Ringgit Malaysia (RM) for calculation of duty and tax assessment.

Trade Group Member Malaysia is a member of several trade organizations (including those noted below) and participates in a plethora of agreements such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting substances and the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, as amended by the 1972 Protocol. The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) cooperates on programs to resolve regional differences and to promote the economic, social and cultural welfare of the region. The Asian Free Trade Agreement (AFTA) provides for an elimination of some duty rates if goods are produced in and transported directly to a member country. The Common Preferential Trade Agreement (CPTA) does the same. The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is made up of 21 Pacific Rim countries, all devoted to unregulated free trade and investment in the region by 2010 (2020 for developing countries). Malaysia also belongs to the World Trade Organization (WTO) which provides a common forum for nations to negotiate rules of international trade, to create multi-country trade agreements, and to resolve trade disputes.

General Import Clearance Information Clearance Process Working with Customs officials throughout the world, FedEx has developed innovative technology to eliminate many paperwork-handling steps and expedite the movement of international shipments. This is the FedEx Expressclear electronic Customs clearance system.

Starting at the origin, state-of-the-art technology allows the processing of shipment paperwork and electronic transmission of documents to the designated FedEx hub and destination clearance location. The Expressclear system also keeps a database of regulatory information which includes importers numbers, broker designation, corporate contact names and telephone numbers. At a FedEx hub, international shipments are sorted, scanned and loaded onto an international flight. Vital shipment information is keyed into a worldwide manifest database, which is linked to computer systems operated by brokers and Customs officials in many countries. Even before the plane has taken off, or while it is in the air, Customs agents and brokers at the destination airport of entry can begin examining shipping manifests, querying air waybill data if they need more details, assessing duties and taxes and selecting which shipments they wish to examine. By the time the plane arrives at his destination, many packages have already been cleared by Customs. As the plane is unloaded, the Expressclear system identifies packages to be examined and prints "cleared" Customs labels for all others. Cleared shipments can be transferred to trucks for immediate delivery. International shipments are scanned at all key points throughout the process and allows for up-to-date status reports including when Customs clearance is obtained. All goods entering or exiting Malaysia must clear Customs. Imports are subject to customs duty, sales tax, and excise duty except for those exempted under law. In some circumstances, imports may also be subject to anti-dumping or countervailing duties, which result in the imposition of additional rates of duty. Exports are subject to customs duties. Duties and taxes must be paid before Customs will release goods for import or for export. Customs clearance is usually done by a customs broker or by the carrier on behalf of the importer. Although Malaysia has begun to automate this process at the Kuala Lumpur International airport and in Port Klang, clearance is usually a manual process in which a C1 import declaration is submitted to Customs for all shipments. The only shipments exempt from filing an import declaration are those which contain only business or personal correspondence and are of minimal weight and value. Prior to or at time of shipment arrival the shipment documents are reviewed to determine if any of the commodities within are subject to duty, tax, or regulatory controls which may require an inspection or additional documentation. When inspection is required (mostly for agricultural products), the broker or carrier coordinates arrangements with the regulatory agency. If the importer has not already obtained any required import licenses, permits or other documents, the broker or carrier will usually assist the importer to obtain them. If required approvals are not obtained prior to arrival of the shipments, one or more days of delay is common. Currently, FedEx does not charge any additional fees when providing these services on behalf of the importer. When classification (under the Harmonized System) is completed and all documentation is present and charges (duties, taxes, license fees, etc.) have been calculated, the import declaration and payment is submitted to Customs for release. All import declarations require submission of a bill of lading or air waybill, and a commercial invoice. If preferential duty treatment is desired, a Certificate of Origin must be provided with the import declaration. Any requests for duty or tax exemptions should made by providing a statement on the C1 import declaration form in the prescribed manner. Royal Customs and Excise Department has several offices established for enquiries on classification of goods and can provide assistance in determining regulatory requirements.
