The manual release of import shipments will be allowed only upon authorization from the Office of the BOC Commissioner.


As of today, the following customs port & sub-ports have identified their respective timelines for mandatory e-OLRS implementation:


Port of Cebu   –           07 January 2013

Mactan subport           –    07 January 2013

Other customs ports are expected to announce their own implementation schedules.


Meanwhile, it should be noted that in sub-port Tagoloan/Phividec, Mindanao International Container Terminal Services Inc (MICTSI) is already strictly implementing e-OLRS since the start of this year.
