Standardize law enforcement

Eg. Increase or explicitly  show the contents  of the  administrative  law enforcement publicity system, such as law enforcement  certificates,  two­ person  law  enforcement  system , administrative penalty implementation information publicity, administrative penalty  dis c ret ion  benchmark disclosure, and major penalty decisions disclosure  according to law, accept social supervision, and improve the credibility  and transparency  of  law enforcement.

Enforce the law impartially

Eg. Combining with the practice of customs law  enforcement, “less harmful consequences” and “actively cooperate with customs investigation and admit mistakes and penalties” are added as the circumstances  of lighter punishment, which embodies the principle of equivalent punishment.

Civilized law enforcement

Eg. Adjust the time limit for presenting statements, arguments and hearings to 5 working days, compress the original time limit for organizing hearings and the time limit for refusing hearing review, extend the time limit for  hearing applicants, increase the way of oral application for hearings, and  further  improve  the regulations  for  the  third  party  to participate in hearings.

Innovative law enforcement

Eg .  Adjust  the  or igina l expression of “simple case” to “hand le  quickly” , and  add admitting  mistakes and penalties  as the  applicable premise, taking into account the principle of efficient customs law enforcement  and  priority  of parties’ rights,and reducing law enforcement disputes.
