ii) All the Customs Compliance Verification (CCV) requirements, instructions etc will be done by the designated proper officer of Customs.

iii) The CCV would operate even while duty has not been paid or payment is under process. iv. 

iv) After completion of CCV, the proper officer of customs, on satisfaction that the goods are ready for clearance, will confirm the completion of the CCV for the particular Bill of Entry in the Customs System.

v) On confirmation of payment of applicable duty, the Customs System will then electronically give clearance to the Bill of Entry.

The detailed requirements and changes in ICES will be communicated to field formations by way of ICES- Advisory from DG Systems.
