BOC to install new goods declaration verification system in E2M this month

  • The Bureau of Customs will soon replace the Goods Declaration Verification System (GDVS) with a new feature integrated into its Electronic-to-Mobile (E2M) System
  • Similar to the GDVS, the Auto Assignment of Declaration (AAD) randomly assigns import entries to appraisers and examiners on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Unlike the GDVS, the AAD will be incorporated into the E2M System, reducing the need for BOC personnel to encode the lodged entry details twice
  • Stakeholders can monitor the status of their entries through an online inquiry system in the customs website and kiosks

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) will soon replace the Goods Declaration Verification System (GDVS) with one to be integrated into its Electronic-to-Mobile (E2M) System.

In a statement, BOC said it will embed in the E2M System this month a new feature called Auto Assignment of Declaration (AAD) to replace the GDVS.

BOC Management Information System and Technology Group (MISTG) deputy commissioner Allan Geronimo, in a text message to PortCalls, said AAD is similar to the GDVS in randomly assigning import entries to appraisers and examiners on a first-come, first-served basis.

Unlike the GDVS, however, the AAD is incorporated into the E2M System. Geronimo said this means BOC personnel will no longer need to encode the details about the lodged entry twice, which is one step less in encoding.

He added that with the AAD, stakeholders will still be able to monitor the status of their entries “because we will have an online inquiry system too in the customs website and kiosks similar to GDVS.”

The GDVS was first implemented by BOC in 2017 in one port with the aim to prevent collusion or bribery between customs examiners and the customs brokers or importers who are seeking to fast-track processing of shipments.

The system then underwent different versions and names through the years, including the enhanced GDVS or 1-Assessment, which was implemented in select ports in 2018. In 2019, BOC re-launched the GDVS along with other computerization projects that were for implementation in all its ports. – Roumina Pablo
