The National Customs Agency is a decentralized administrative body of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit created to strengthen national security at points of entry. It will organize and direct customs and inspection services, apply and ensure compliance with the legal provisions for the imports and exports of goods, and collect taxes and duties applicable to foreign trade operations. The entry into force of the decree will be on the date the current fiscal and customs faculties placed on the Revenue Administration Service are transferred to the new decentralized body.
