Home » Customs & Trade » BOC’s e2m to cover more ports this month and next

BEGINNING June 21, 2010, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) will apply its electronic-to-mobile/import assessment system (e2m/IAS) to the sub-ports of North Harbor, Manila Domestic Airport, Siain (Plaridel, Quezon), Puerto Princesa, General Santos and Mati (Davao Oriental).

Implementation at the North Harbor will not be a problem, predicted the BOC, since the system is already being used by the North Harbor’s new operator at another of its facilities — the Harbour Centre Port Terminals, Inc.

Port users are also by now familiar with the system since its introduction last year in adjacent ports Manila International Container Port and the Port of Manila.

On July 12, e2m will also take effect in the sub-ports of Iligan, Dumaguete, Sual, Isabel, Catbalogan, Laoag Airport and Ozamis; and on July 26, 2010 in Claveria, Salumague, Pulupandan, the Mindanao Container Terminal, Bauan, and Mactan-Philippine Economic Zone Authority.

The e2m system covers import lodgment through value-added service providers; the Client Profile Registration System; Electronic Manifest System; clearance of Formal Entry System (Consumption and Warehousing); use of Payment Abstract Secure System v.5; application of non-cash payments, consisting of Tax Exemption Certificates, Import Entry Declaration, Tax Debit Memos, Import Entry Declaration/Advanced Payment and Deferred Payment of Government Accounts through the e2m Payment System; On-Line Release System; and License and Clearance System involving government agencies that are ready to upload their licenses, clearances and other authorizations to the e2m Customs.
