Subic,Clark approve e-TAPS implementation


Subic and Clark authorities have approved the use of the Automated Transit Admission Permit System (e-TAPS) to ease trade flow in the two ports.

Officials of the Subic-Clark Alliance for Development Council (SCADC), Clark Development Corp., (CDC) and Subic Bay Freeport Authority (SBMA) signed the joint memorandum order for the implementation of the e-TAPS at the Clark International Airport Corp., (CIAC) Board Room.

The e-TAPS design intends to simplify procedures and accelerate approval time in the processing of applications for tax and duty-free importations of locators and enterprises.

SBMA Administrator and CEO Armand Arreza, SCADC chairman secretary Edgardo Pamintuan, and CDC president and CEO Benigno Ricafort signed the memorandum.

Customs accredited value-added service provider (VASP) Intercommerce Network Service (INS) provides the remote lodgment facilities for the preparation and lodgment of the Transit Admission Permit (TAP) to the Freeport Authorities. It will be processed and approved with system generated Freeport Zone Authority reference number.

The Freeport authority through INS shall approve the TAP and transmit the approved TAP with electronic signature and prescribed data through the National Single Window Program of the Bureau of Customs.

The new procedure allows the importer/broker to create the import entry / Transit Single-Administrative Document (SAD) using the approved TAP data. This simplifies the workflow, eliminate the physical validation of the data in CDC/TAP and the Customs IEIRD form.
