Customs Modernization and Tariff Act


Republic Act (RA) No. 10863, otherwise known as the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act (CMTA), was signed into law on 30 May 2016

CMTA amended the Tariff and Customs Code of the Philippines (TCCP) with the aim of modernizing Customs rules and procedures for faster trade, reduce opportunities for corruption, improve Customs service delivery and improve supply chain.

This is the primary site for the public consultation on the drafting of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the CMTA.
