3 ASYCUDA++ migration in NBR BACKROUNDASYCUDA project ( )NBR as an IT greenfield,Creation of operative tariff, new Customs form, closed loop,Introduction of ASYCUDA v.2 in DCH and CCH,Decentralised management of ASYCUDA (96-00)Decentralised IT expertise,IT as a tool only,CAM1 project (99-02)Streamlining Customs documentation and procedures,Use of risk management and post-audit methods,Increase the use of Information Technology,ASYCUDA++ migration project (01-02)Executed by UNCTAD as a component of CAM1,

8 The ASYCUDA++ SystemASYCUDA++ is a complete and fully integrated Customs computer system.The ASYCUDA++ interface makes operation easier for the user by: -Presenting the system to the user in the form of task specific modules...…designed for the needs of an office or of a particular grouping of functions.
9 The ModulesASYCUDA++ system modules are grouped into main three types, according to function: -General office User modulesSpecialist office User modulesSystem maintenance and reporting
10 General User ModulesMODCBR1. Module ‘MODCBR’ is the Customs general (Branch) office module and the central part of the ASYCUDA++ system.MODCBR is for Customs data entry, declaration processing and general controls.2. Module ‘MODBRK’ is the general office module for Customs brokers or declarants - to prepare and present declarations to Customs by ‘Direct Trader Input’(DTI).MODBRK
11 MODCBR - Customs Branch Office General User ModulesMODCBR - Customs Branch OfficeCustoms Declarations:Data capture and validationCalculations, messaging on Customs controlsStorage of data and declaration registrationSelectivity, inspection routing and reporting of inspection resultAssessment, delivery
12 MODCBR - Customs Branch Office General User ModulesMODCBR - Customs Branch OfficeCustoms Declarations:Data capture and validationCalculations, messaging on Customs controlsStorage of data and declaration registrationSelectivity, inspection routing and reporting of inspection resultAssessment, deliveryLinked Functions:Manifest details; cargo dischargeDuties and taxes payable or paidSelectivity controls - process routing and nomination of examiners‘Stock records’ for suspense proceduresManagement information
13 MODBRK - Customs Broker’s Office General User ModulesMODBRK - Customs Broker’s OfficeThis module has similar (but restricted) data entry and declaration processing functions to MODCBR.MODBRK is used for Direct Trader Input (DTI)*.
14 MODBRK - Customs Broker’s Office General User ModulesMODBRK - Customs Broker’s OfficeUsed in the Custom Broker or Declarant’s office:-To prepare and present Customs Declarations:Data capture and validationCalculations, messaging on controlsStorage of declaration dataand subject to Customs agreement on acceptable processing flows:Registration and/or AssessmentPayment and releaseProcesses where a Customs Server connection is not necessaryCustoms Server connection is required for these processes
15 Specialist User Modules ASYCUDA specialist modules are dedicated to specific Customs functions.MODCAR Carrier or Manifest moduleMODACC Accounting moduleMODSEL Selectivity Controls moduleMODTRS National Transit moduleMODSDI SAD Deferred Input moduleMODCARMODACCMODSELMODTRSMODSDI
16 MODSEL - Selectivity Controls Module Specialist User ModulesMODSEL - Selectivity Controls ModuleSelectivity is the selective inspection of transactions - either by physical examination or check of documentsASYCUDA allows the channeling of declarations to four processing lanes, nominated by colour: -Red lane for physical check;Yellow lane for documentary check;Blue lane for the option of post import/export audit; orGreen lane for release
17 MODSDI - SAD Deferred Input Module Specialist User ModulesMODSDI - SAD Deferred Input ModuleModule MODSDI is used for input and data validation of declarations initially processed through a non-computerised office.This allows for an effective check of the calculations and the other details of the manually processed declaration.... and incorporates the data into the ASYCUDA database to facilitate reporting and statistical extractions
18 Maintenance & Reporting Additional ASYCUDA modules are used for the setup of the system, (National and Office configuration modules), and for system maintenance and statistical reporting.Module MODCHQ is used to maintain the system’s reference tables and gives access to standard statistical extracts.MODCHQ
19 MODCHQ - Customs Headquarters Module Maintenance & ReportingMODCHQ - Customs Headquarters ModuleThe module called the ‘Headquarters Module’ is used to set up and to maintain the ASYCUDA system’s reference tables.The reference tables contain:the standard international codes, such as the HS Tariff, country and currency codes;national codes, such as office, broker/declarant and company codes; andcalculation data, like rates of currency exchange, duty and tax rates, special exemptions and concessions.
20 MODCHQ - Customs Headquarters Module Maintenance & ReportingMODCHQ - Customs Headquarters ModuleThe headquarters module also gives quick access to standard statistical extractions from the ASYCUDA transaction database.Standard reports give a choice of views of the statistical database.If the preprogrammed views or reports are not sufficient in certain circumstances, SQL queries may be run from the ASYCUDA interface.
21 MODCHQ - Customs Headquarters Module Maintenance & ReportingMODCHQ - Customs Headquarters ModuleName of view: Ordered and totaled by:‘Customs Database’ Countries/ProductsCountryProducts/CountriesProducts‘Financial Database’ Duty/tax AccountDuty/tax CountryDuty/tax Product Duty/tax Customs Procedure‘Economic Database’ Importer/Exporter/CountryImporter/Exporter/ProductList of Companies/CountryList of Companies/Product‘Loss of revenue’ (preferences and concessions) - by budget codes, company, commodity and country.Standard Reports

24 ConclusionsFast pace of changes and increasing e-nature of international tradeReform is necessary, and is a continuous process,International standards need to be adopted,IT should become a strategic tool – MIS as a specific wing in NBR ?Short timeframe for the project and scope of change makes cooperation between all stakeholders and timely delivery of outputs a mustMeasures towards long term sustainability of reformed and automated processes required early in the projectShould the above be recognised and accepted by all stakeholders the benefits from the ASYCUDA++ migration project and the associated reformed and modernised documentation/processes will be increased and felt over the long term.
