Contrary to the stance and expectations of some stakeholders in the import and export business; and civil society groups, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has implemented UNIPASS/Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS) at the Tema Port and other ports of entry across the country. It replaced the Ghana Customs Management System (GCMS) ran collectively by Ghana Community Network Services GCNet and Customs World of Dubai, formerly known as West Blue Consult.

The imminent question is, why has GRA resorted to the implementation of the UNIPASS/ICUMS platform in spite of strong opposition by key stakeholders in the import and export business? The UNIPASS/ICUMS platform has a set of features that accentuate its acceptance and implementation over the Ghana Community Management System.
