As part of its commitment to prevent the entry of illegal goods into the country, the Bureau of Customs Port of NAIA (BOC-NAIA) condemned various regulated goods without health and safety clearances seized by the Port, which includes food items, unlabeled medicines, vape juice and linhua qingwen medicines among others. The said regulated goods were seized on various occasions as part of BOC-NAIA’s border security and anti-smuggling campaign.

The condemnation was conducted in a facility located in Trece Martires, Cavite, by Pyrolysis using high temperature heat to incinerate and totally destroy the subject regulated goods. The condemnation was spear headed by BOC-NAIA’s Auction and Cargo Disposal Division (ACDD) with the assistance of Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service – NAIA and Enforcement and Security Service District Office – NAIA.

In her statement, BOC-NAIA District Collector Carmelita Talusan stressed that aside from health and safety concerns to the public, the condemnation process is part of the Port’s efforts to enhance trade facilitation by decongesting customs warehouses and ensure adequate customs facilities for arriving goods.*PR
