The Bureau of Customs’ (BOC) Automated Inventory Management System (AIMS) is now being used by customs bonded warehouses (CBW) under the Port of Manila (POM).
The AIMS went live on September 14, more than a month after all accredited CBWs under POM were directed to complete requirements to implement the system’s first phase.
As of September 20, CBWs have already made live declarations to the AIMS.
With AIMS going live, all CBWs under POM are required to make available all warehousing single administrative documents (SAD) and transshipment SAD for all warehousing re-entry tagged “PAID.” They must also make available their export declaration tagged “ASSESSED” in the Electronic-to-Mobile (E2M) system and processed on August 11 onwards.
This will allow the CBW operator or its representative to process post and current declarations, according to AIMS accredited service provider Cargo Data Exchange Center, Inc. (CDEC) in an advisory dated September 13.
