THE Bureau of Customs said it would complete the interconnection of the National Single Window and electronic to mobile system in two months despite a conflict in warranties.

Commissioner Angelito Alvarez told reporters that the only setback is the possibility of losing the warranties from its e2m system provider Unisys Philippines should it be linked up to the NSW.

“Of course, we don’t want to lose the warranties given by Unisys in the event that we connect the e2m to NSW,” Alvarez said.

The warranties protect the government from hidden faults and defects of the system.

The Customs chief said Crowne Agent, which is the system provider of the NSW, has guaranteed no glitch would arise from the interconnection.

“We are discussing with them the options as to how we can pursue with the plan and at the same time we don’t lose the warranties,” Alvarez said.

“The NSW will be linked up to e2m in two month’s time,” he added.

Once completed, the NSW will interconnect initially 10 government agencies issuing import permits, and thereafter, another 40 other government agencies necessary for import and trading transactions.

The NSW is in compliance with the Asean Single Window program scheduled for next year. The Philippines was supposed to complete the said program in 2009 but several technical difficulties prevented the full operation of the system.

Under the initial launch, the BOC is applying the government-to-government model of the NSW that involves both automated and manual processes. The automated process only involves the electronic printing of import permit application and automated release of the permit while submission and processing will be done manually. The agencies involved in turn issue a bar code that will be submitted to the NSW for use in validating the authenticity of documents including the payment of fees.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
