BOC-Subic gets SBITC system access to directly stop cargo release

  • Bureau of Customs-Subic has been granted access to the terminal operating system of Subic port operator Subic Bay International Terminal Corp.
  • The access allows BOC-Subic to directly stop release of shipments issued with an alert or hold order
  • The collaboration between BOC-Subic and SBITC aims to “effectively execute their duties to protect the border from entry of unlawful, prohibited and antisocial goods”
  • The access is seen to result in “a more efficient security and will give the organizations an effective way to scrutinize incoming entries”

Bureau of Customs (BOC)-Subic has been granted access to the terminal operating system (TOS) of Subic port operator Subic Bay International Terminal Corp. (SBITC), allowing it to stop release of shipments issued with an alert or hold order.

The collaboration seeks to “effectively execute their duties to protect the border from entry of unlawful, prohibited and antisocial goods,” BOC said in a statement.

It added the access will result in “a more efficient security and will give the organizations an effective way to scrutinize incoming entries.”

SBITC manages and operates Subic port’s container terminals, New Container Terminal (NCT) 1 and NCT 2. SBITC’s TOS manages movement of containers in the terminals.

An alert order is issued against a shipment based on derogatory information. Based on Customs Memorandum Order 07-2018, which provides BOC’s revised rules on the issuance and lifting of electronic and manual alert orders, alert orders must be issued only after the goods declaration is lodged and before the goods are released from customs custody.

Physical or non-intrusive examination of the alerted shipment will be conducted within 48 hours of issuance of the alert order.
