1st Batch of Successful Electronic Lodgements To e2m AEDS

IT’S confirmed! The initial batch of electronic lodgements to e2m Automated Export Declaration System (AEDS) was already made as of last week. I do not want to pre-empt the Bureau of Customs from making its official announcement so I can divulge only a few key details.

The pioneering group of exporters who made the 1st bold step to successfully transition from manual export declaration to electronic AEDS Single Administrative Document (AEDS SAD) includes companies registered with the Board of Investment. They have fully complied with mandatory requirements of the e2m Client Profile Registration System (CPRS): Customs Client Number (CCN) and bank reference number (BRN). They used a customs-accredited service provider (VASP) which as a fully operational VASP software application to accept e-lodgements of AEDS SAD.

The BOC Export Division staff at the loading port was also trained on how to process and clear export shipments using AEDS SAD.

We are positive that more BOI-registered exporters and PHILEXPORT members will soon follow suit and start using electronic AEDS SAD well ahead of the projected 01 September 2011 date of mandatory implementation.

PEZA AEDS Pilot Testing

Two (2) PEZA-accredited VASPs are about to commence pilot testing of “live” electronic lodgements to PEZA AEDS by their respective locator clients. The AEDS systems of both InterCommerce Network Services (INS) and Apollo Technologies Inc (ATI) were already checked and reviewed by PEZA.

The pilot locator clients already complied with BOC CPRS and have submitted their lists of exportables to their preferred VASPs. These lists will undergo online approval by the concerned PEZA zone managers.

BOC NAIA Consultations With Stakeholders On Air Manifest

BOC NAIA is undertaking a very proactive approach in making sure all concerned stakeholders are properly consulted with regard to mandatory implementation of e2m electronic manifest submission for airlines and airfreight forwarders.

District Collector Atty Carlos So presided over a consultation meeting last Friday attended by officers of the Port Users Confederation, Chamber of Customs Brokers Inc, and Aircargo Forwarders of the Philippines, Inc. Last 23 June, BOC NAIA also held separate meetings with representatives of airlines, air express operators and airfreight forwarders/consolidators. Full implementation of mandatory advance submission of air manifest is targeted on 17 August 2011.
