(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon has embarked on an IT transition in the customs sector in order to replace “Sydonia++”, its automated customs system. In that regard, the customs general director Fongod Edwin Nuvaga (photo) informs, a new IT system baptized “Cameroon Information System” (Camcis) entered into experimentation phase on October 1, 2019, at pilot sites in Kribi, Douala-Youpwé, Yaoundé-Nsimalen, Kousséri, and Ngaoundéré.

Users must register themselves in the new system via the platform "ept.camcis.cm", to be able to peacefully continue their clearing operations. The director also invited his partners operating in the maritime, banking, insurance and airline sectors to get in touch with his IT department for documents’ mailing via the new system.

Camcis is replacing Sydonia++, an app initially designed for statistical information requirements. According to customs, Sydonia++ was unable to handle all the customs clearance tasks. Inspired by Korea, Camcis should greatly reduce the time required to perform import/export procedures and help secure more tax and customs duties.
