Abstract
:

Road Cargo System (ROCARS) is an information technology system newly developed by the Customs and Excise Department for the customs clearance of road cargo. Under ROCARS, new functions of Data Inheritance (DI) are introduced. DI refers to the re-use of common data items in ROCARS for the preparation of trade declaration (TDEC) using the new Internet-based end-user software. It can save users’ effort and time of inputting the common data items again for TDEC submission, and also enhance data accuracy.

The Census and Statistics Department has been actively involved in preparing system requirements and testing of features in relation to DI. This feature article gives a brief account of new developments in the Electronic Declaration Service to cope with the launch of ROCARS and presents the salient features of DI.
