The eCustoms solution developed by SIVECO Romania has affirmed itself in the “Medium Sized Projects” category within the International Project Management Association 2012 competition

International Project Management Association 2012

This year also, SIVECO Romania is the Finalist of the competition dedicated to the best projects in the world, organized by the International Project Management Association (IPMA). 

This recognition is granted to the NCTS (New Computerized Transit System) project, developed and implemented at the National Customs Authority in Turkey. 

The IT system dedicated to customs consists in a suite of interoperable, integrated and accessible applications, facilitating the electronic data exchange within basic customs processes. This contributes to increasing the transit procedures’ efficiency, to fraud prevention and detection, to accelerating and securing the operations developed within a transit procedure, to improving communication and coordination between the customs administrations. 

We are very proud of this nomination within such a prestigious competition worldwide. It is an honor for both our company and our country that SIVECO develops large scale international projects with an excellent management. Our company’s experience in the customs sector is built during over 15 years of experience in designing, developing and implementing complex, integrated IT solutions”, stated Dan Tuhar, Director of eCustoms department within SIVECO Romania. 

NCTS is a computer-based system for the control of movements of goods in transit that are not subject to free circulation within the European Union (UE) and EFTA (European Free Trade Association) countries territory. The European Commission requests that candidate states have a computerized transit system fully compatible and interoperable. Thus, preparing the Customs Administration in Turkey for accession to the Common Transit Convention and connection to NCTS in the EU context is a prerequisite for EU accession. 

IPMA is the most respected authority in project management, the international jury involved in the annual IPMA Gala Awards competition being well known for its professionalism and exigency. This year, the competition celebrates its 26th edition. 

Last year, at the International Project Management Association Gala, held in Australia, the New Computerized Transit System developed by SIVECO Romania for the National Customs Authority in Romania has received the big award “Winner IPMA Awards 2011”.
