Click here for document: Standard operating procedure and end user guideline for Customs Officers and Declarants.


The objective of this document is to assist the trading community in obtaining Customs clearance on all goods being imported. This operating procedure applies at all Ports of Entry in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Guide describes all required operations involved in processing and assessing a Customs Declaration until goods are delivered to the importer, all under an electronic environment. The Declarant is required to self‐assess the e‐Declaration (e‐C82) using the Customs Border Control System (CBCS). The goods declaration is the most important document in the customs clearance process.
