The new transit system will ensure simplified electronic customs clearance procedures and will contribute to fighting customs fraud

Bucharest, 19th of January 2011 - SIVECO Romania will provide a computer based system for management of the customs transit operations for the Customs Administration in the Republic of Macedonia. The system will be implemented within a project deployed in the period of February 2011 - February 2013.

This is the third beneficiary of SIVECO Romania eCustoms solution, following to the National Customs Authority in Romania and the Customs Authority in Turkey.

The eCustoms solution implemented by SIVECO Romania at the National Customs Administration in the Republic of Macedonia will cover all the customs houses.

"The software solution we are going to implement will allow for computer-based, real time management of all the customs transits from entry up to exit, will be completed in 24 months and will harmonize the Macedonian customs system with the European Union one", has declared Dan Tuhar, eCustoms Line of Business Manager, SIVECO Romania.

The NCTS (implemented at the Romanian Customs Authority, as integral part of the IT - based EU customs system) is based on submitting the transit declaration in electronic format, as well as on the exchange of electronic messages between the customs offices involved in a transit operation (office of departure, transit office and office of destination /receipt), offices found on the territory of Member States and EFTA (European Free Trade Association) countries. Exchange of electronic messages is carried out also between the European Commission NCTS system and the corresponding systems of Member States in order to update the common reference data (codes of customs offices, countries, measurement units, codes for attached documents etc).

The main objectives of NCTS are increasing the efficiency of transit procedures, improving fraud prevention and detection, speeding up and securing the operations deployed within a transit procedure, improving communication and coordination between the customs administrations.

"The system will provide economic agents with many advantages, including improvement of the quality of service, reducing waiting time spent at the customs and greater flexibility in presenting customs declarations", has added Dan Tuhar.
