The following are the most important projects expected during the coming year in the field of simplifying customs procedures and combating fraud, included in an introductory note to the draft Finance Law for the year 2024:
1/ Collection and customs regulation:
– Establishing customs measures that enhance the waste recycling system within the framework of what is called green collection.
– Contributing to protecting the national industry by activating anti-dumping measures, in coordination with the relevant sectors.
2/ Simplifying procedures and keeping pace with contracting:
– Improving the procedure for granting and managing guarantee and transfer facilities subject to customs economic regulations.
– Exemption from customs duties imposed on imported goods and equipment within the framework of huge investment programs whose deadlines have been extended.
– Facilitating passage through customs for Moroccans residing abroad and travelers, by opening the possibility of declaring currencies online, as well as temporary admission permits for tourist vehicles.
3/ Combating fraud and contributing to the protection, safety and preservation of people’s health:
– Within the framework of enhancing technological vigilance, experiments are being conducted with the aim of building models capable of automatically predicting fraud, based on the data contained in a customs declaration.
These models are based on advanced techniques of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data.
In addition, the system for targeting passengers will be improved based on data collected by transport companies.
4/ Communication and improving service quality:
– Launching an application on the Internet and mobile phone that enables individuals to estimate the value of the rights and fees that must be paid for imported materials from time to time, such as e-commerce collectibles of a non-commercial nature (items intended for consumption or personal use).
