ADFCA's new steps ease transaction for food importers

ABU DHABI, August 7, 2018

The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi General Administration of Customs has modernised and developed a number of procedures for food importers at Abu Dhabi's border ports, said a report.

The move reflects ADFCA's keenness to offer its customers a unique experience to complete their transactions in a smooth and quick manner by streamlining procedures to save time and effort for its customers, reported state news agency Wam.

Thamer Rashed Al Qasemi, spokesperson of ADFCA, said that updating these procedures reflects the authority’s adherence to building bridges of cooperation with strategic partners, in its effort to integrate and ease procedures for food importers, as well as advanced services provided to them.

Al Qasemi added that the authority aims to reduce the length of providing services to customers, which previously required more time, such as inspection of imported food shipments.

He continued that ADFCA also developed the system of collecting and analysing samples according to the products' risk level-based system, taking advantage of the previous databases of the samples' results.

Al Qasemi pointed out that these updates included many features, procedures and services provided to food importers, such as free services at the emirate's border ports and extending working hours at ADFCA's Khalifa Port office.

To ease customs clearance procedures of food shipments at Khalifa Port, ADFCA extended the inspection working days and hours from 7:00 to 23:00 every day of the week, added the report.
