What is JASTPRO Code?

What is JASTPRO Code?

  • It is a code made for trade-related procedures, e.g. customs clearance, cargo management, bill of lading, payment of Customs duties, etc.
  • By automatic transfer of trader information into Japan's single window of trade, the code facilitates:
    • the efficiency of cargo management
    • the identification of trade-related party
    • the simplification of custom clearance
  • It is valid for three years, but is extendable. The registration certificate can be issued either in Japanese or English upon request (with a minimum certification fee)

Who needs this code?
  • Importer/Exporters, or custom brokers helping with custom clearance, who utilize 'Nippon Automated Cargo and Port consolidated System' (NACCS).

What is NACCS?
  • It is Japan's single window, a system for online processing of procedures, utilized by the customs, relevant administrative authorities and related private-sector services, for arriving/departing ships and aircraft, or import/export cargo.

Why is JASTPRO code important?
  • Quick identification of the applicant
    Once JASTPRO code is issued and registered within the NACCS system, those who joined the system would be easily identified by the code with necessary information for custom clearance.
    Custom clearance would thus become more efficient, leading to lowered time cost for traders and custom brokers.

  • Faster and simpler data entry
    All information of the trader (e.g. Corporate number, name and address of the company/trader, in both Japanese and English etc.) provided during registration of JASTPRO code would be tied with the code. When using the NACCS system, the trader information would be automatically filled in by only entering JASTPRO code.
    Traders and custom brokers could be free from repetitive manual operations, and enjoy a speedy and easy experience of custom clearance.

  • Not only for import/export declaration but more
    The code can also be used in the following situations:
    • Managing cargos
    • Completing bill of lading (B/L)
    • Making transaction for customs duty
    • Completing various kinds of ledgers
