Suriname: Customs inspection registration for more transparency

As part of the tax reforms currently taking place, the Import Duty and Excise Inspectorate Service, in short the Customs Service, has started extensive control actions. This means that from Monday, November 2, the control activities carried out by customs on loads entering the country will be registered.

This national registration applies at all inspection posts and everywhere where loads are delivered, such as sea and airports and the (private) temporary storage places for shipments.

Inspector Lloyd Kuhn, acting head of the service, guarantees that customs will use this control record to work constructively in order to minimize delays in handling cargo. A new registration form has been designed in a web-based application for registration.

Deputy Head of Customs, Patrice Ormskerk, explains that customs officers should record all control work performed on any document in addition to regular necessary information such as the official’s name, document number, importer, type of goods and particulars that matter.
