The start of phase C of the ACTS Pilot, the live run, has been delayed because of the COVID-19 virus. Participating Member States in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam are making final preparations to register Principal Traders to participate in this last phase of the pilot. These traders are in the process of obtaining the necessary Customs guarantees, and, in conjunction with their transporters, acquiring ASEAN Goods Vehicle Cross Border (AGVCB) permits. These traders will be able to start using ACTS operationally later in the year.
Once the lockdown is lifted, ACTS transit movements under phase C will start, and this date will be publicised
