The mandatory implementation of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) expanded Automated Export Declaration System (E-AEDS) will take effect on March 15, 2012.

Under PEZA Memorandum Order 2012-002 signed by PEZA director general Lilia de Lima on February 14, the system covers all export shipments of ecozone export enterprises; ecozone logistics service enterprises, including ecozone facilities enterprises with warehousing/logistics and recycling operations.

Only shipments loaded at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila International Container Port, Port of Manila, Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Cebu International Port, Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, and the Port of Subic are part of the system.

Excluded are several cargoes under a single export declaration (ED) or cargoes to be released from economic zones on a staggered basis; export shipments of physical products of ecozone IT enterprises; and direct export shipments of enterprises to be loaded outside the listed ports whose shipments still require processing under the existing manual export processing system. (The latter still needs the issuance of an order covering the same under the E-AEDS.)

All export declarations have to be electronically filed and processed through any of the PEZA-accredited service providers: InterCommerce Network Services, E-Konek Pilipinas, and Apollo Technologies.

The order also provides for selective shipment inspection to be undertaken by PEZA-Bureau of Customs (BOC) personnel prior to release from the PEZA ecozone.

The E-AEDS export processing fee (EPF) has been set at P225 per ED for less than a container load, and P225 per ED consisting of one to two full container load plus P112.50 per FCL in excess of two.

But for the system’s first six months of implementation, the EPF will be P150 per ED regardless of the type or number of cargoes contained in the ED.

The order is silent on how exportables for ecozone logistics service enterprises and facilities enterprises with recycling operations will be approved. In the meantime, these will be tagged as regulated by zone officials.

Meanwhile, the BOC’s separate automated export system under the electronic-to-mobile system is still being worked on. PortCalls understands a meeting at the agency will soon be called to hammer out details of the initiative.
