For shipment to be discharged in Subic Port, you must first be accredited in the Trade Automation and Facilitation System (TAFS) using the DiTI (Direct Input Traders). For shipment to be discharged in other ports (Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Port Of Manila, Manila International Container Port), enrollment to Electronic Transit Admission Permit System (ETAPS) is a must. Forms for such enrolment/accreditation are available in the Department or from the offices of SBMA-accredited Value Added Service Providers (VASP) namely E-Konek Pilipinas and Intercommerce Network Services.
If the activity of the locator is logistics or trading either within or outside the zone, the same has to make a formal request addressed to the office of Senior Deputy Administrator for Port Operations. It is later endorsed to TFCD for evaluation and assessment in compliance with its registered activity based on its Certificate of Registration and Tax Exemption (CRTE) and its capacity to import the same. Request must be made prior to the sailing of goods from the port of origin. In the absence of an AP, the company will be penalized US$2,000.00 per shipment for the first offense and/or seizure of the goods or revocation of its CRTE for the succeeding offenses.
