The Bureau of Customs (BOC) has transferred more non-information technology functions from the Management Information System and Technology Group (MISTG) to other relevant groups and offices so the IT group can focus on its main role.

Customs Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 01-2019, dated January 16 and signed on January 18, amends CMO 13-2018, which transferred certain non-IT functions of MISTG to other authorized groups and agencies whose primary roles are more aligned with such functions.

CMO 13-2018 declared that the transfer of non-IT functions is to enhance efficiency in accreditation and Client Profile Registration (CPRS) activation process and “strengthen accountability by aligning roles and responsibilities for the performance of select functions.” CPRS is a module under BOC’s electronic-to-mobile (e2m) system that facilitates the automated process of registration and renewal of all stakeholders.

Under CMO 01-2019, BOC’s Account Management Office (AMO) is now responsible for activating the CPRS of exporters registered with the Export Marketing Bureau and the Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan, other exporters including government exporters, customs-bonded warehouse exporters, and Philippine Economic Zone Authority importers.

AMO is the office in BOC tasked to process the application for accreditation of importers and the registration of customs brokers.

CMO 01-2019 also states that the updating of the tariff code and tariff rates in the e2m shall be the responsibility of the Assessment and Operations and Coordinating Group.

CMO 01-2019 takes effect 15 days after publication in the Official Gazette or any newspaper of general circulation.
