■ About Service Provider (Sankyu)
As a system supplier, they have the service that makes and sends an advance filing data to Japan customs via NACCS.
NACCS has an input system called net-NACCS but it is prohibited to use in overseas, so data imput from overseas has to be done through SP system mainly.

■Advance Filling Rules
Realizing the need to have more stringent border security measures in place, Japan will introduce the rules to enhance our security level of international logistic up to the international standard and to prevent terrorism and transnational organized crimes by screening detailed maritime container cargo information received at an early stage.
   ⇒ The rules will be implemented in March 2014.
