Circular No.ES/79/2022-23 30th August, 2022
To: Members of the Council
Sub: Faceless Assessment – Standard Examination Orders through RMS - Phase 1, Part 1
CBIC has issued Circular No.16/2022-Customs dated 29th August, 2022 on the above subject.
As you may be aware, the Board had earlier decided to introduce Risk Management System (RMS) generated uniform examination orders at all Customs stations across the country and hence, it had even requested the National Assessment Centres (NACs) to review the examination orders given by different Faceless Assessment Group (FAG) officers in the same situation, streamline and standardise them, to avoid needless variations in practice and thereby avoid delays.
Based on the inputs received from NACs, the National Customs Targeting Centre (NCTC) (former RMCC) has now developed system generated centralized examination orders for Bills of Entry (BE), in coordination with DG Systems and NACs, based on various parameters, which is ready for rollout in phases. This functionality will enhance the uniformity in examination, lower the time taken in the process and reduce associated costs.
For detailed information, members may kindly refer to CBIC’s Circular No.16/2022-Cus.
Members are requested to make a note of the above.
