BoC Subic, PDEA intensify border protection

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — The Bureau of Customs Port of Subic and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency recently conducted a coordination meeting here to enhance border protection on this premier Freeport.

According to district collector Maritess Martin, the coordination meeting between the two agencies also showcased the new equipment that will be used to detect dangerous chemicals — the Serstech 100 indicator (Raman Spectrometer) — designed for measuring various chemicals.

The official said that on April, the BoC Port of Subic was provided one unit of Trace Detection System as an addition to the non-intrusive tools for examination and inspection for the use of the Port.

This enforcement equipment will boost the agencies’ capability in detecting illegal substances allowing them to intensify their security measures against the entry of contraband into the country.
