Bureau of Customs Upgrades ID System
RFID—PHILIPPINESJanuary 13, 2012
Journal Online reports that the Bureau of Customs is currently finalising the introduction of a new "color-coded" Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID). Accordingly, "duly appointed personnel," or those with approved tenure with the agency, will be issued a new ID. Individuals without an "employee-employer relationship" with the bureau--including daily visitors, Commission on Audit, ombudsman and vendors--will be issued a "visitor's access pass."
