‘this application will complete the loop in the digitization of Import Declarations processing by the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards; Plant Quarantine Services of the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries; and the Food and Drugs Inspectorate under the Chemistry, Food and Drugs Division of the Ministry of Health. It eliminates the need for paper documents during inspections and increases efficiency due to the instantaneous decisions being sent via mobile devices.’
