Online Application for Certification and Exemption Information System (OACEIS)

The Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) issues a CERTIFICATE FOR NON- CONTROLLED PRODUCTS covering substance(s) that is/are not included in the list of dangerous drugs and controlled precursors and essential chemicals and a CERTIFICATE OF EXEMPTION or BOARD RESOLUTION FOR EXEMPTION for finished product(s)/preparation(s)/chemical mixtures containing dangerous drugs and/ or controlled chemicals pursuant to Board Regulation No. 1, S. 2014.

Since 2014, the DDB has been using the Application for Certification and Exemption Database System (ACEDS) which stores, monitors and manages all gathered data and information regarding applications for exemption and certification.

In 2018, the DDB started developing the Online Application for Certification and Exemption Information System (OACEIS). This is an enhancement of the ACEDS and was developed by the Management Information Systems Unit of the Board. Through OACEIS, we aim to streamline the application process by reducing paper requirements and processing time for the benefit of our stakeholders. This follows Republic Act 11032 or "Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018."

Starting July 1, 2020, the DDB shall start using OACEIS in processing all applications for Certification and Exemption.

As a matter of policy, applications through OACEIS shall be made PRIOR to importation and arrival of shipment.
