The Joint Border Management System will ultimately provide the import and export industry with a single electronic point of contact with New Zealand border agencies.
Trade Single Window will enable industry to deal directly with government agencies for customs and biosecurity requirements, and Customs and the Ministry for Primary Industries can more effectively manage risks for goods crossing the border.
Key functions of Trade Single Window will be progressively available to industry from April 2013.
The implementation approach will:
allow thorough testing and performance assurance of each stage before moving to the next
ensure that the border clearance activities of Customs and MPI are not compromised during the changeover
ensure that there is the least possible interruption to industry.
