Abu Dhabi Customs (ADC), in line with its vision to drive security, trade facilitation and service excellence, has launched its new Smart Classification and Tariff Management System, positioning ADC at the forefront of the latest technological developments in the industry.
The Smart Classification and Tariff Management System is developed in corporation with Webb Fontaine and makes use of an advanced search engine built on Artificial Intelligence, and next-generation IT systems to provide appropriate HS codes for customs transactions. The new system will digitise HS Code Classification for the products being imported to and exported from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
“This is the first system at a regional level that supports the search according to the commercial description of the goods and through the global trade item code GTIN and the chemical compound registration CAS Number,” said HE Rashid Lahej Al Mansouri, Director-General of the General Administration of Customs in Abu Dhabi. “This enhances customs processes by directing users to select the appropriate and correct classification code and associated prohibitions, restrictions, or explanatory notes. This helps reduce classification errors, contributes to effective revenue collection, improves the quality of foreign trade statistics, encourages voluntary compliance with dealers and builds trust between the trading community and Abu Dhabi Customs.”Click below to share this article
