here's the full text posted on the website of the Bureau of Customs last 26 May 2014
Statement of Customs Commissioner John P. Sevilla on the revised guidelines for importer accreditation
Following the issuance by the Department of Finance of Department Order No. 33-2014, and in response to feedback received from importers and customs brokers throughout the Philippines, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) announces the release of Customs Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 11-2014. For importers and brokers who have not yet complied in full with the requirements of CMO No. 4-2014, CMO No. 11-2014 supersedes CMO No. 4-2014. The main changes in CMO No. 11-2014 are:
- It gives importers or brokers whose accreditations expire after 31 May 2014 additional time to apply for their BIR Importer Clearance Certificates or Broker Clearance Certificates;
- It allows temporary accreditation with the BOC for importers and brokers who have applied for, but not yet received, their Importer Clearance Certificates or Broker Clearance Certificates with the BIR.
CMO 11-2014 does not apply to importers and brokers who have already complied in full with the requirements of CMO 4-2014.
The full text of CMO No. 11-2014 is available on the BOC’s website,http://customs.gov.ph/issuances/customs-memorandum-order-cmo/.
To ensure no interruptions in their transactions with the BOC, all brokers and importers are advised to obtain a copy of the full text of the CMO and comply with its requirements as soon as possible.
