On 30 September 2021, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) announced that the Reporting of Conveyances of Goods External Policy had been updated. This revision includes the Number Plate Recognition (NPR) cameras.
NPR cameras will mark trucks for arrival or exit at land border posts where the system has been rolled out. The reporting of conveyances and goods process has been updated to include the NPR process. Where the NPR cameras are not installed the gate-in and gate-out process must still be followed by the Customs Officer.
The document to consult is SC-CC-38 – Reporting of Conveyances and Goods – External Policy.
