Dubai Customs updates Post Clearance Audit System
The updated audit-based control system helps Dubai Customs expedite the release of goods through the implementation of smart and fully integrated processes.
Dubai Customs has announced that it has upgraded its Post Clearance Audit (PCA) system.
Developed in compliance with the regulations of the World Customs Organisation (WCO), the updated platform introduces a number of smart and fully integrated processes that help streamline the customs process.
As part of its implementation, training workshops were conducted for PCA department employees to prepare for the system’s utilisation.
"Our new PCA is a smart integrated system fully connected with a set of multilayer systems, which provides a comprehensive perspective to assessing declarations status; thus effectively auditing and scrutinizing any transaction regardless of its type or level," commented Younis Othman, director of IT department at Dubai Customs.
"The WCO officially requested Dubai Customs to present this new cutting edge system at their Brussels Headquarters, being an innovative breakthrough that can be cascaded into similar contexts whether in Customs administrations or elsewhere worldwide,” added Othman.
Commenting on the system’s development, Ekhlas Al Mutawa, direct of post-clearance audit department at Dubai Customs, said: “The PCA project reengineered audit processes by aligning them with best industry practices as per the Revised Kyoto Convention, an international instrument adopted by the World Customs Organisation (WCO) to standardize and harmonize Customs procedures and policies worldwide.”
