Commercial Goods Clearance Procedure

When duty is to be collected on commercial, high value or goods otherwise specified by Customs, a Detailed

needs to be completed by a Broker or Tariff Clerk in the ASYCUDA system.

    amount assessed. If requested the Importer or Broker must present an assessment notice or any other documents to the customs cashier.

 Step 3:  Release

                - If the declaration is assigned to the Blue / Green Lane, a broker or the chief examiner can print the release order.
