The Customs Administration announced that this operation is suitable for import/export cases of marine commodities such as marine wildlife and products of conservation and marine mammals. Through the OAC’s “Marine Wildlife import/export license and Clearance Platform” connected to CPT to conduct the comparison data items between the permission and declaration, to improve the management efficiency of import and export clearance.
The Customs Administration further stated that, in the past, customs brokers had to apply to the OAC for a paper permit, fill in the declaration form with the license number, and then submit the paper to the Customs at the counter.
