Additional Project Info :
ASYCUDA is operational in Georgia since 1998.
The Georgian Revenue Service (GRS) ASYCUDAWorld system is operational nationwide (please see Implementation Map below). In all GRS customs sites:
- all customs regimes are operational
- 100% of the declarations are processed through ASYCUDAWorld
- all declarations are submitted to Customs in electronic format (100% DTI, Direct Trader Input)
- all reference data (tariff etc), including risk profiles and criteria, updated in the GRS headquarters, are automatically made available to all Customs sites (effective tool to apply the law nationwide in a consistent and effective manner; a strong anti-corruption measure)
- all customs declarations are automatically consolidated into the GRS HQ central database and subsequenly used to produce real-time accurate statistics.

The current ASYCUDAWorld version operational nationwide is ASYCUDAWorld/TIR system, which integrates the latest IRU TIR functionalities (TIR Electronic Pre-Declarations and Real-Time SafeTIR). This new version provides GRS with the following services:
- Automatic transfer of the TIR Electronic Pre-declaration to GRS, i.e. GRS receives comprehensive information concerning the TIRs that will arrive in the country prior to the arrival of the truck at the border. The pre-arrival information can be used for risk-management as well for operational purposes (e.g. customs officers retrieve the TIR Carnets’ data instead of keying them in, which minimizes both the work and the possibility of errors).
- Automatic cross-check of the validity of the TI.R Carnets vs. the IRU central database, which is an additional strong tool in the fight against fraud in transit operations.
- Automatic generation of the SafeTIR message and transfer to the IRU central system, an important trade facilitation feature, which decreases significantly the time requested to confirm the closing of TIR operations.
