Bureau of Customs (BOC) stakeholders whose accreditation are expiring during the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) period have 30 days from lifting of the MECQ to renew their accreditation, according to BOC assistant commissioner and spokesperson Atty. Vincent Philip Maronilla in an online update on May 13.

Stakeholders whose accreditations expire from May 16 to May 31—the period covering MECQ–can process renewal for a month starting June. “They are expected to use that period of extension to renew all their accreditations,” Maronilla told PortCalls.

Covered stakeholders include importers, customs brokers, Super Green Lane importers, customs bonded warehouses, customs facilities and warehouses, or any other third party transacting and accredited with the BOC.

The application likewise covers stakeholders in areas under general community quarantine since BOC’s Accounts Management Office, which handles the accreditation, is located in Metro Manila, which is still under MECQ.

Maronilla said BOC welcomes online applications for renewal and that electronic signatures are accepted.

BOC had previously extended the expiring accreditation of stakeholders due to the first lockdown over Luzon which began on March 17. At that time, BOC also gave stakeholders one month from the lifting of the lockdown to submit their renewal application. – Roumina Pablo
