New system optimises food import applications

The Brunei Darussalam Food Authority (BDFA) introduced a new online system for registration of imported processed food products yesterday.

The Processed Food Import Registration (PFIR) system will replace the Food Import Registration system at e-Darussalam portal and can be accessed from November 23. The new system has improved features including the registration of up to three individuals for each company; bundle applications; and ability to make amendments for registered food products.

The PFIR is part of BDFA’s efforts to optimise processed food import application.

Approved registration will be given a reference number required for declarations via the Brunei Darussalam National Single Window (BDNSW) under the Royal Customs and Excise Department (RCED) at the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE).

Importers will be able to access the system via BDFA’s website

The new system also allows the public to apply for personal import of processed food products.
