INDUSTRIES & SERVICES DIRECTORATE

The primary objective of this directorate is the promotion and implementation of Customs Procedures with Economic Impact (CPEI) that provide conditional relief from Customs duty and/or other levies including VAT on import or export goods, merchandise and wares under specific conditions for specific purposes.

Participation in the national economic development efforts, while  preventing revenue and commercial frauds, and protecting economic interests of the country as entrenched responsibilities of the Customs in the trade and industry facilitation, places this directorate in a unique position in contrast to other directorates of the Department of Sri Lanka Customs.

In addition to the above, the Directorate is vested with the Customs functions in relation to clearance of sea and air parcels through postal and courier services, and also the coordination of Customs related matters with Board of Investment of Sri Lanka.
