Port of Legazpi Starts Working under the ‘New Normal’ Situation

Port of Legazpi, Legazpi City, Albay 20 May 2020 – After more than two (2) months under the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) situation the Bureau of Customs-Collection District V adapts to the new normal situation amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. 
Last May 18, 2020, the Port commemorated its 148th Anniversary as an open port. In lieu of the usual celebration, the Port  spent the day Cascading the Performance Governance System (PGS) Roadmap. This is also in support to one of the major thrusts in the Commissioner’s 10 point priority program which is the Certification of ISO 9001:2015 to all Customs Units/Groups. All personnel were able to attend the cascading activity while  ensuring the strict implementation of social distancing.

Upon declaration of General Community Quarantine (GCQ) a week ago, acting District Collector Alexander M. Go, has ordered the immediate resumption of all pending projects at the new two-storey building at the Port. This include  fencing, air conditioning system, water system, energization of transformers and securing of occupancy permit. These are all being expedited to effect the immediate transfer of the personnel to the new building.

On revenue collection, the Port intends to create a team that will conduct inventory on all goods and items imported under Philippine Economic Zones Authority (PEZA) locators, as this can be a source of non-traditional revenue.

According to Coll. Go, the Covid-19 crisis seriously affected the collection performance of the Port and the country’s economy. Notwithstanding, BOC Legazpi personnel remains steadfast in their duty to collect lawful revenues and protect our borders from smuggling and other frauds.
