Operation of the single window

Since 6 July 2015, approved customs brokers have been able to apply for supplier codes and client codes using the 'Trade Single Window (TSW) Online Registration'. This registration process and the TSW Online Guides can be viewed at the following link:

The e-commerce platform for trade, which has been part of the Customs and Ministry for Primary Industries Joint Border Management System programme, will allow all border requirements for goods and craft to be met in one place instead of many.

The enhanced TSW, which has been in place since 2013 with more than 5 million transactions processed, supports the seamless clearance of trade. The completed TSW has expanded functionality across the system. For TSW Online Registration, this includes the ability for brokers and other organizations to control who can do what in their name.
