|Customs Introduced an integrated automated system for registration of Exporters with online data exchange with other concerned departments such as SECP, NADRA etc.|
|Reform Description||Before: Exporters need to register as users in the WeBOC system of FBR which required more than twenty documents and also required exporters to physically visit concerned offices for physical verification.
After: Now registration of exporters is done through an integrated online system of Pakistan Single Window (PSW) with data exchange with other concerned departments as well as biometric through NADRA. This has reduced a lot of hassle and cost on the part of exporters.
|Beneficiaries||All Exporters and Importers|
|Department||Pakistan Customs [Federal Board of Revenue]|
|Date of Implementation|
|Timeline||Last 03 Months|
|Details||Difficulty||Registration of exporters required more than twenty documents, and physical visits to concerned offices, which were located only in major cities. This process of registration was not user friendly and consumed a lot of time.|
|Analysis||It was deliberated that there shall be an integrated online facility which offers data exchange among various concerned departments.|
|Solution||A new subscription module has been developed as part of Pakistan Single Window (PSW) which allows data sharing among the FBR, SECP, SBP, Telecom Operators and NADRA etc. So far more than 10,000 exporters and importers have been electronically registered.|
