All 10 ASEAN Member States Exchange the ATIGA e-Form D through the ASEAN Single Window

Wednesday, 01 January 2020.

With a view to expediting customs clearance, ASEAN adopted an action plan to establish the ASEAN Single Window (ASW). The system enables a single submission of data, a single synchronous processing of information and a single decision-making for customs release and clearance among ASEAN Member States (AMS). Since January 2018, the ATIGA e-Form D has been the first e-documents exchanged through the ASW among five (5) AMS namely, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam.

Following that progress, December 30, 2019 marked the day of the full live operation of the ATIGA e-Form D among all 10 AMS.

With the complete connection of all 10 AMS, ASEAN is moving towards covering more trade documents such as ASEAN Customs Declaration Document (ACDD) and e-Phyto certificate, as well as connecting the Dialogue Partners systems to allow the exchange of electronic documents beyond the ASEAN region.
