2. In line with the Board’s Circular and based on the feedback received from field formations, provisions have been added in ICES for assisting the field officers in the workflow of BEs marked for faceless assessment. Trade is hereby informed that there is already a provision for the importer to declare a previous BE as a reference for every item while filing a Bill of Entry. The view of such declared Previous BE has also been given along with the RMS reference BEs.
Importers/Customs Brokers (CB) are advised to avail the option of giving reference of their previous BEs during Bill of Entry filing itself in the Item table. The view of reference BE indicated either by RMS or optionally declared by the importer/CB can assist assessing officers in expeditious assessment of the document.
3. Difficulties, if any, faced in implementation of the said Public Notice may be brought to the notice of the Addl./ Joint Commissioner (Appraising Main (Import)) through email at email@example.com.
