Subject: Implementation of Electronic Manifest
Pursuant to determination of the Management Information System &
Technology Group (MISTG) that the air manifest is encountering problem
because some Airlines who submitted e-IFM with type of Airway Bill
declared as MAWB resulting in the acceptance of the House Airway Bill
even if the manifest is not yet registered, aggravated by some
Forwarders using the chargeable weight instead of the gross weight. As
a result, direct validation of pending e-IFM submission is projected
to be finished by early next week.
To ensure continued delivery of services without interruption and
minimize the adverse impact of the transition into the e-IFM to the
transacting public, especially, Importers in the PEZA and Free Port Zone,
the following temporary measures are hereby adopted:
1. Transit shipments bound for ECOZONES, FREEPORT ZONES and
CUSTOMS BONDED WAREHOUSES are hereby allowed manual
2. The Brokers/Consignee shall encode the goods description and print-
out the Pre-SAD. Then the print-out of Pre-SAD together with the
attachments shall be stamped with a unique reference/entry number by
3. Once the AWBs of those manually processed shipments are validated
the Transhipment SAD (TSAD) must be lodged in E2M.
4. Once finally assessed, the TSADs shall be coursed through the AOD-
Transshipment Unit for cancellation of manual entry.
5. Outstanding manually processed entries not reconciled by AOD-
Transshipment Unit 15 days after final release shall be treated as
abandon or overstaying cargo as the case may be.
For strict compliance.
