Customs urged to defer implementation of WeBOC ID option
Karachi Customs Agents Association (KCAA) has demanded the customs department to defer the implementation of deactivation User ID option of WeBOC Glo by the end of holy month.
Arshad Khursheed, General Secretary, KCAA said that Pakistan customs had launched the first phase of WeBOC Glo on May 13, 2019 and introduced deactivation User ID option in it.
He said that the WeBOC Glo had defined the period for deactivation User ID and added that inactive user ID of traders and clearing agents would be deactivated after 60 days and 15 days, respectively.
He said that some 15 to 16 user IDs of clearing agents were so far deactivated, causing delays in the clearance of the consignments.
Replying to a question, he said that reactivation of user IDs was not being done after at least two days due to short-working hours in Ramadan and urged the customs department to defer the implementation of deactivation User ID option in WeBOC Glo by the end of holy month to facilitate the trade.
Furthermore, he also proposed the customs department to extend the period for deactivation User IDs up to 6 months for traders and a month for clearing agents.
