The office of the DGOV shall closely monitor the pendency of the SVBs, approve the initiation of SVB inquiries, and supervise the investigations. Furthermore, the Board has desired that the DGOV continuously endeavor for qualitative improvement of SVB investigations/orders. 


5.         It is envisaged that on completion of investigation in a case, the proper officer in SVB will issue an order for determination of value under Section 14 of the Customs Act, 1962. The order will be sent to the importer concerned, the Custom House which had referred the case and to DGOV.


6.     The work relating to review, appeal and other legal matters arising out of cases investigated and orders passed by the proper officer in SVBs, shall continue to be handled by the jurisdictional Commissioners of Customs. Directorate General of Valuation will provide its views on the orders passed by the proper officer to the jurisdictional Commissioner of Customs, which will be given due consideration, when the orders are examined by Commissioners of Customs for review or acceptance under section 129D of the Customs Act, 1962.


7.      These instructions shall take effect from 1st January, 2013. 


8.         Publicity to this Circular may be given by way of issuance of public notice and standing order.
