Direct submission of documents at WeBOC allowed

KARACHI: Pakistan Customs has taken major steps for trade facilitation and allowed submission of documents at WeBOC without prior approval of Assistant Collector (AC)/ Deputy Collector (DC).

Saif Ullah Khan, President, Karachi Customs Agents Association (KCAA) welcomed the step taken by the Pakistan Customs and said it would reduce dwell time for consignment clearance.

He appreciated efforts of the Chief Collector South (Appraisement) Wajid Ali who had initiated the pre-arrival clearance process and simultaneously promoted the re-engineering of various steps of the clearance process that has improved the working environment.

One such improvisation is the direct dissemination of the document calling message without the approval of AC/DC group. Usually the traders had to wait for the approval of document calling message by the concerned AC/DC before they can attach the documents in the Weboc system.

This outstanding stride by the Chief Collector South in collaboration with Directorate of Reforms and Automation will enable the traders to receive the document calling message for any particular goods declaration without the need for AC/DC to approve it hence subsequently expediting the clearance of cargo, he added.

Regarding Refund Management System, the following changes also made by the Customs Authorities under Weboc system.

KCAA General Secretary Arshad Khurshid also appreciates the interest shown by the Chief Collector South (Appraisement) that has really benefited to overcome the challenges faced by business community.
