Executive Order No. 482 s. 2005 created the National Single Window (NSW) Task Force for Cargo Clearance to bring about a more efficient and effective service to the public.

The NSW Task Force is composed of a Steering Committee and a Technical Working Group (TWG). The Steering Committee (SC) is a high level committee chaired by the Secretary of Finance responsible for ensuring the effective and efficient implementation of the NSW and ASW.

The TWG is presided over by the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and designated representatives from other agencies, and is responsible for the implementation of policies and directives of the Steering Committee by coordinating the activities incumbent for the establishment, implementation, operation and monitoring of the NSW and ASW.
