Within the DaziT programme, the FOCBS was able to put around 30 mobile apps, other applications and basic IT services into operation.
New smartphone apps enable digital customs clearance for tourist traffic (QuickZoll), mobile payment of the lump-sum heavy vehicle charge (Via, recognised as the best Swiss app of 2019) and the automatic activation of customs declarations when crossing the border (Activ and Periodic). Furthermore, thanks to internal apps, FOCBS employees can make more efficient queries regarding checks, collect receipts on the move and sign in and out of work via smartphone. This significantly increases the security and effectiveness of operations.
The digital services of the FOCBS are gradually being launched in ePortal. Registration and user management are based on the self-care principle – at any time and from anywhere. Thanks to DaziT, the master data is now managed on a central platform (SAP MDG), which is an important preliminary step in the renewal of the nationwide SAP systems (SUPERB project).
The first elements of the new Passar goods traffic system have been implemented in commercial goods traffic. The accompanying document and e-com and Chartera Output applications allow contactless interaction with customs. Since autumn 2021, the FOCBS has been the first customs authority in Europe to test the use of telematics for fully automated activation of customs declarations at the border. It uses existing interfaces from fleet management systems for this. On 1 June 2023, the the first version of the new goods traffic system Passar will be put into operation.
The digitalisation of the collection of levies is also progressing. Beer taxation has been almost completely implemented electronically with Biera. Connection to the European toll system EETS is the first stage in the complete overhaul of the HVC collection system. The progressive automation of the collection of transport levies represents a significant contribution to making border crossings quicker.
Risk analysis is improved through participation in the European Import Control System 2. With the introduction of ICS2 in postal traffic, customs data in online trade is already transmitted upon dispatch from third countries.
