The PSW aims to facilitate the traders/customs agents with online applications for Import permits/Export Certificates (Phytosanitary certificates) by the DPP. Now the trader/customs can electronically perform document calling, inspection calling, and approval/rejection of Import Permit and Export Certificate requests. The Export Certificate request will be generated by the system at the time of submission of the Single Declaration (SD). The traders will not have to visit the DPP office and manually submit applications for the issuance of regulatory approvals. The processing of the application will be done online, where traders can have clear visibility of the action being performed.
