In the third quarter of 2021, additional seven administrative procedures were launched with 183,715 processed records and 1,628 participated enterprises. 

Viet Nam received 412,177 C/O forms from ASEAN nations including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and the Philippines and sent 1,078,404 C/O forms to these countries. 

The testing of connection techniques and the exchange of test messages on export customs declarations was completed with the Eurasian Economic Union. Viet Nam is negotiating technical requirements for building an exchange of certificates of origin system with the Eurasian Economic Union, and exchanging information on electronic C/O forms with the Republic of Korea.

The nation signed an "Agreement on facilitation of clearance of agricultural, forestry and fishery products through the use of electronic certificates" with New Zealand.

Earlier at a meeting in late August, Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh, who is also Chairman of the National Steering Committee on ASEAN Single Window (ASW), NSW and Trade Facilitation, asked for raising the number of administrative procedures connected to the NSW to 261 by the end of the first quarter of 2022.
