The "MASLUL" system is a shared system connecting "Global GATE" (the Israel Customs new foreign trade system) with the competent authorities so that all necessary licenses and permits for the purposes of Legality of Importation are transmitted via the system directly to customs. This System enables all importers, exporters and customs agents to submit online applications for licenses and permits from competent authorities and to view the status of handling from the stage of the application to the stage of approval by the competent authority and forwarding to Customs. In addition, the system allows to keep up with the general announcements added by the authorities, and to receive notices regarding the handling of requests on a regular basis. The majority of competent authorise are included in the system as the rest of them are in course of being added to the system.

The system operates with electronic messages without any paper and includes a digital signature component, provides access and availability to a number of databases, and sharing of all elements of the foreign trade community into one database.
