BOC assistant commissioner and spokesperson Atty. Vincent Philip Maronilla in an online livestream on March 20 announced the extension of accreditation.

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) is extending the accreditation of stakeholders unable to renew due to the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

In a memorandum dated March 19, Customs commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero said stakeholders’ accreditation expiring during the quarantine period—from March 17 to April 13—will remain valid starting March 17.

Covered stakeholders include, but not limited to, importers, customs brokers, Super Green Lane importers, customs bonded warehouses, customs facilities and warehouses, or any other third party transacting and accredited with BOC.

Stakeholders are given one month from the lifting of the enhanced community quarantine to submit their application for renewal of accreditation.

In a statement, BOC assured stakeholders it is “doing everything it can to provide assistance and ensure continuity of service and operations.”

BOC on March 19 started daily live updates on its Facebook page to answer questions of stakeholders and provide updates on operations during the quarantine.
