Obtaining Customs Accreditation (CIIS) for import/export
« on: September 27, 2006, 10:45:33 am »
 Hi,

Has anyone had the experience to obtain a customs accreditation (CIIS) for import/export?
I just want to know if this process is complicated such that one needs to have a contact in the
department or it can be done on our own?  Any experiences shared will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

probably one way to obtain a CIIS is to approach your broker and let them do the processing. just submit requirements and pay them a minimal fee. we payed them around P1500....

hope this helps

Actually, the forwarding company I got in touch with says they can assist me in obtaining the CIIS
and it costs around 3000.00 to get accredited.  If I wanted their assistance they are charging me an
additional 3000-4000.00 which I think is too much.  If your brokers are cheaper I would be interested
to get in touch with them.  Please advise.  Thanks for the information.

Add'l lang po.

Processing fee (Inspection fee) ng Customs personnel assigned to inspect your Office and Warehouse is depends on your office location. For example, Your office is within Manila, Paranaque, Mandaluyong, Makati... fees are ranging from 1,500 to 2,500. If outside Metro Manila, They demands much higher fees.

Other docs required aside from Edwin_edwin30 mentioned are:

> Electrec bill, telephone bill or water bill.
> Contact of leased, if the office is rented.
> Land title, if owned.
> Valid ID's

Aside from all mentioned required docs, Customs inspector need to take some photo of your office including the applicant's. This is a proof of customs personnel that he/she inspect your office.

Hope above helps.

Hi,

If you use your residence as your registered office/business, its allowed by Customs as long as all business permits are address in you residence. Regarding warehouse, Customs dont look so much on it. Its mandatory po talaga sa Customs inspector to visit the office of the applicant's.

Dati po CIIS accreditation ang tawag natin dito kasi po CIIS division ng Bureau of Customs ang nag ha-handle ng lahat ng accreditation/renewal.

Ngayon po Commissioner of Customs, delegated to Customs legal Division all accreditation/renewal ng mga importers. And then Customs Legal Div created a sub-division to handle all accreditation/renewal that they called now Customs Accreditation Services (CAS). CAS is composed of all inspectors from CIIS and legal officers of Legal division.

Fees for new applicants and renewal ay di parin po nag babago. Today medyo mahigpit sa requirement ang Customs sa new applicants kasi most of the evaluators are Lawyer. Kaya po medyo matagal ang releasing ng approval nila.
