ARTA to issue warnings to agencies not yet on TradeNet
THE Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) is set to issue notices of warning to trade-related government agencies who are not signed up to the TradeNet system, a platform designed as a single window to facilitate trade permits in Southeast Asia.
In a statement Thursday, the Bureau of Customs (BoC) said the ARTA made the decision during the Tuesday meeting of the National Single Window - Technical Working Group.
It said ARTA will send warnings to agencies for not complying with the
Ease of Doing Business and AntiRed Tape Advisory Council Resolution No. 12 and ARTA Memorandum Circular No. 2021-01.
The resolution requires 73 agencies to join TradeNet by the second week of April. These include offices that process and issue licenses, permits, clearances, and certifications relating to the movement of trade goods.
“ARTA also reported that those who will still fail to comply will be subjected to investigation or appropriate administrative action including but not limited to violations of RA (Republic Act) 11032, AO (Administrative Order) 23, RA 6713, and RA 3019,” it added. —
