5501 Other Export-related Laws and Regulations to be Confirmed by Customs (FAQ)


  Exportation of specific goods may require a permit, approval, etc. under laws and regulations other than the Customs Law. The effectiveness of such laws is ensured in connection with the export permission system under the Customs Law.
  According to the laws and regulations other than the Customs Law, exporters of cargo, who are required to obtain permits or approvals must prove to customs that their requirements have been met during the customs clearance procedure, which then needs to be confirmed. Unless these requirements are proved and confirmed, Customs will not permit the cargo to be exported.
