AFR (JP24) – The New Version Expects
to Simplify and Streamline Operation

Since the start of NACCS system in 1978 serving the trade community in Japan, a periodical regular upgrade of system has been made in every 8 years. The next enhanced version is scheduled to be released in October 2017. A planning of such upgrade always mirrors a variety of emerging elements occurring in the trade industry during the course of 8-years period. To have the public and private sector in Japan well informed on the coming Oct2017 content, NACCS has released its “Interim Report” (NOT final) to cover various new requirements where AFR is one of such issues. It defines comprehensive agenda on how to enhance the government platform or system foundation that can work more efficiently and effectively with the trade business community.  Some consideration of “Single Window” agenda may be expected to reflect into the new version. It also addresses more operational day-to-day matters including the very agenda we place on the table here i.e.the ocean cargo security filing named AFR(JP24).

After the implementation of AFR(JP24) system on March 10, 2014, NACCS have received a wide range of feedbacks and comments from the user community in Japan and overseas relative to specific procedures as well as system functionality. The Interim Report of AFR section in particular has identified a total of 13-items as NACCS’s answering responses. Please refer to the list below together with the new business flow chart hereby shown.

  1. To simplify MFR(Manifest Registration) process by eliminating redundancy of AMR/MFR
  2. To facilitate entry of MFI data without AMR having Container Operator Code
  3. To simplify entry of vessel data changes by adding new feature
  4. To enable and relax entry of relevant data changes even after ATD issued
  5. To streamline processing of DNU information
  6. To facilitate entry of data correction via NACCS instead of Customs
  7. To simplify entry of business reasons why data deletion required
  8. To streamline entry of House BL data changes without deletion of Master BL
  9. To enable listing of unmatched Master and House BL
  10. To have Carrier and NVOCC learn information on unmatched BL in a timely manner
  11. To streamline relevant key data configuration by adding voyage number field
  12. To improve relevant features of processing separate BL
  13. To have overall review on data entry currently done by AFR and MFR
