The Philippine Bureau of Customs (BOC) prepared for the country’s integration with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations single window system, which aimed to facilitate trade among the 10-member Asean.A single window for the regional bloc is expected to increase efficiency through time and cost savings for traders in their dealings with government agencies in securing the required permits for moving cargoes across economic borders.
 
The success of national single window will be measured by the reduction of the time taken by importers and exporters in doing business with government. Under the national single window, the BOC processes applications for permits, licenses and clearances from traders. The system allows stakeholders to transact with government agencies through a single Internet-based window. The centralised system provides any agency information at the click of a button.
 
Government agencies and traders are linked via the Internet through PCs or mobile devices. Traders can create their application entries and verify before sending them to the agency. On the other hand, the national single window will provide a single source of trade data for analytical purposes. It also calls for a government-wide rationalisation, standardisation and harmonisation of all trade-related data.
