2012 SeW balance

2012 SeW balance

31 January 2013

The Single Electronic Window system - SeW reached until December 2012 the milestone of 100,000 declarations submitted and cleared since it began its operation in September 2011. This system represents a major advance in the modernization of Customs.

During this period, an equivalent of 450 million US dollars in customs charges was collected for the state by commercial banks, participating via the SeW.

During this period, over 4,000 users were trained across the country, a figure that includes 1,117 brokers and their assistants, 615 employees of shipping agencies, freight forwarders, employees from port related companies, 225 employees from commercial banks participating in the collection of state revenue via SeW, and the remaining number is from customs officials.

One of the main reasons for the implementation of the SeW is to introduce more efficiency in state revenue collection and contribute to the reduction of costs and time in the clearance of foreign trade goods.

The process of extending the SeW continues throughout the country and it is expected that in addition to the current 52 customs, tax offices and border terminals, over 12 other offices not currently covered by the previous implementation will be integrated in the first semester of 2013.

The SeW extension also includes the addition of over 15 new modules and functionalities for more efficient clearance process with emphasis on the management module of the system of customs warehouses, customs transit, online request exemptions, creation of the unique assignment number - UCR or request of the disclaimer among others.
