ASYCUDA World is the latest version which was introduced in March 2002. It is compatible with major database management and operating systems (Oracle,DB2, Sybase MS/Windows and Linux, HP-UX, respectively). The use of extensible mark-up language (XML) permits, at the national level, the exchange of any documents between the national Customs administration and traders, and, at the international level, between different Customs administrations via the Internet. As it uses modern telecommunications systems and devices and installations like VSAT, independent high-speed Internet connections between Customs Headquarters and border posts can be guaranteed.
The modularity of ASYCUDA means that new or advanced programmes (modules) can be added on at any time to suit the needs of a given country. Such add-on modules can cover Customs functions such as risk management, transit operations or new security standards, depending on national priorities.
