Abstract: In the context of globalization, trade liberalization, environmental crimes and administrative violations in the import of discarded materials in Vietnam are evolving with increasingly sophisticated methods and tricks, colluding with individuals and organizations in other countries around the world. At major seaports in Hai Phong, Ba Ria - Vung Tau and Ho Chi Minh City, thousands of containers of discarded materials imported into Vietnam are accumulated, causing environmental pollution and affecting business operations. This situation poses new requirements in the management of environmental crimes and administrative violations in the import of discarded materials, which contributes to environmental security and sustainable development in Vietnam.
