- It was also requested that the Incheon Customs Office issue a special customs clearance number the company may use as a substitute for a corporate registration number.

Outcome:
The Incheon Customs Office issued a special customs clearance number to the company as requested by the OIO. The imports of the company may now pass the customs clearance.
