Ever since October 1999 when the categorized management of enterprises was carried out, relevant measures for management and standards for categorized ratings have been incessantly improved and therefore better suited the development of the current state of affairs. Practical experiences show that the implementation of the categorized management of enterprises has played a positive role in strengthening the supervision of customs offices, encouraging the enterprises' observation of laws and regulations and in establishing a standardized and well-established order of import and export. However, in the categorized management of enterprises in the near past, it has been complained in some places that there exists the problem of easy degradation and difficult promotion and there is the request for loosening the standard for ratings. In order to promote the development of foreign trade and economic cooperation, according to the instructions of the leaders of the State Council and to the decision of the inter-ministerial joint meeting of the MOFTEC, the standard for rating the categorized management of enterprises has been readjusted and jointly publicized by GAC, MOFTEC, and the State Economic and Trade Commission (SETC) (No. 5 of 2001) for implementation as of July 1, 2001.
