Whether the customer's purchase data is true or not has always been the place where most foreign trade friends have hesitation. When it comes to the authenticity of purchasing data, we will think of two points, one is the source of the data, and the other is the method of acquisition. These two points are particularly important. Data authenticity The customs data of foreign trade states are primary data purchased from the official customs agencies of various countries. The formal source channels allow commercial use. The integrity of the data is high, and continuous updates are guaranteed. This is a point to distinguish the quality of the data. And in the process of using the data, we can easily determine whether the source of the data is regular based on the content of the data. The content of customs data is mainly divided into two parts, one is procurement information, and the other is the buyer's directory. The real purchase information, which provides the data of bills and customs declarations, contains the data of ocean bills of lading and the customs import and export declaration information, and records the actual import and export transaction records of each country. Since the bill of lading is a non-standard document, not only the contents and styles of the fields of the bill of lading differ from country to country, but also the specifications and format are not strictly required when filling in. Coupled with the inconsistency of the fields published by various countries, there are indeed substandard data in the market, and customs statistics and buyers' lists are posing as customs data. This is very easy to distinguish. We can verify it through two methods. One of the above mentioned is whether the provided data can be continuously updated after the purchase of the data. This is one point; the other is to provide the data for order. You can see the detailed transaction records of two parties, or only the buyers' list. After knowing the acquisition channels and content, let's talk about it again. "Is it legal to use customs data?" Data legitimacy As early as 1996, the United States passed government legislation to publicize national customs data worldwide and authorized professional companies to conduct commercial operations. The disclosure of customs data is in the interest of the country, is beneficial to economic development, and is an inevitable trend in international trade. Since then, more and more front-line countries and regions have also released their country's customs data. Of course, each country has strict legal regulations on information disclosure and public content. What content is disclosed and what information is disclosed are inconsistent. Next, let's talk about whether customs data can be used in China? In fact, in the 1990s, China began to introduce open customs data. Since then, service providers have continued to join the customs data service industry. Today, more than 100 companies across the country are providing data services. At this stage, the country strongly encourages foreign trade exports, and export policies do not explicitly restrict the use of foreign customs data, and the front-line country customs data that has been released for public is true and legal, and everyone can rest assured.
