The Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs (CBIC) has issued Circular No. 41/2020-Customs dated 7th September 2020 regarding Auto Let Export Order under Express Cargo Clearance System (ECCS).
We understand that, in order to facilitate exports by courier and to enhance the global competitiveness of India's exporters, CBIC has decided to allow the facility of Auto Let Export Order (LEO) under the Express Cargo Clearance System.
The facility of Auto LEO has been developed by Directorate General of Systems & Data Management and is ready for launch.
You might be aware, that the Courier Shipping Bills (CSBs) filed for clearance of export goods under ECCS are subjected to Risk Management System (RMS), after the registration of the goods by the Custodian (arrival scan and weight record). The RMS either facilitates or interdicts a Courier Shipping Bill (CSB) as per risk parameters.
Therefore, it has been decided that export goods which are covered under CSBs and are fully facilitated by RMS (no assessment, no examination) and cleared by customs x-ray scanning shall be automatically given LEO by the ECCS.
This is expected to considerably reduce the dwell time of clearance of export shipments through courier.
Members may take note of this trade facilitation measure. The said circular is available for reference on the below link:
