Dear Valued Customers,
Please see attached memorandum issued by Bureau of Customs (BOC) regarding the:
PREVENTIVE MEASURE ON E2M SLOWDOWN
Lodgment of Goods Declaration/Single Administrative Documents (GD/SAD)
Due to bulk of Goods Declaration/Singe Administrative Documents (GD/SAD) being filed late in the afternoon while very low are filed in the morning resulting in the afternoon slowdown of the E2M system due to sheer volume, it is being implemented, beginning October 1, 2019, that cut off time for the filing of the GD/SAD on weekdays shall be at 3:00 pm to avoid slowdown of the E2M system in the afternoon, thereby resulting in the faster processing of the flied GD/SAD.
This will also ensure that the EPU will have time to review and scrutinize the documents submitted and that the assigned Examiner will have sufficient time to devote to each entry to maintain quality of examination and computation of duties and taxes, taking into account also the completion of the assessment process within 24 hours from the filing of the consumption of GD/SAD.
The EPU will immediately post a notice that beginning 01 October 2019, cut off time for the filing of the GD/SAD on weekdays shall be 3:00 pm.
For your information and proper guidance.
Thank you very much.
