Costa Rica Announces Digital Export Processing

The new digital system will allow online registration for exporters and packers of products of vegetable origin.

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

As of June 13, the State Phytosanitary Service (SFE) will make the Digital Registry of Exporters System (SIDEX by its Spanish initials) available to users.

The SIDEX may be used by exporters wishing to register as a trader, packer, or both. It also allows renewals, annotations, annuities control and registration payment.

The system provides a direct and immediate interaction with the SFE customer, which evaluates the information provided in the registry, resulting in reduced response times.
