Overview of NACCS

NACCS is a system for online processing of procedures taken with customs and other relevant administrative authorities or related private-sector services for arriving/departing ships and aircraft or import/export cargo.

With the former NACCS, that for the processing of procedures, etc. for air cargo (Air-NACCS) (Note 1) and that for the processing of procedures, etc. for sea cargo (Sea-NACCS) (Note 2) were each operated as an independent system. However, the system underwent a review on the occasion of the October 2008 upgrade of Sea-NACCS and February 2010 upgrade of Air-NACCS. The review led to Air-NACCS and Sea-NACCS being integrated, along with the Port EDI System managed and operated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, JETRAS managed and operated by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and other related ministry/agency systems also being integrated with NACCS. The result was the launch of a new NACCS into operation.

Moreover, the new NACCS is additionally joined by importers/exporters, shipping brokers, NVOCCs, etc., improving convenience as a platform system that comprehensively manages logistics information, etc. of ports and airports.
