With the introduction of self-sealing using RFID e-seals, the Board has sought to enhance export facilitation by dispensing the need for exporters seeking the presence of jurisdictional officer for the purposes of supervising stuffing of the containerized cargo at approved premises. Exporters are required to procure "RFID tamper proof one-time-bolt seal" from approved vendors. The integrity of the RFID seal would be verified by the Customs Officer at the Port/ ICD by using the reader-scanners which are connected to Data Retrieval System of the vendor. In case, the RFID seals of the containers are found to be tampered with, then mandatory examination would be carried out. The list of CBEC approved vendors can obtained by clicking on the following link:
