Description of the Subject - Union Customs Code (European Union):

The new Customs Code of the European Union and its complementary rules have been in force since 1 May 2016. The fundamental objective is to consolidate the European economic integration by optimising the customs procedures of the EU (Customs Union) as well as enhancing the foreign trade.

The complementary rules of the new European Customs Code define the European customs procedures.

The new European Customs Code enhances the use of new information technologies and the role of economic operators. The concept of customs value and exporter has been redefined.

The Customs regimes are referred to as special regimes and can be:

A) General

  1. Release for free circulation
  2. Export

B) Specials

  1. Storage (customs warehouse and free zones)
  2. Transit (external or internal)
  3. Special destination (temporary importation and final destination)
  4. Improvement (passive and active).

In the New Customs Code, the free warehouses, free zones (type II) or reimbursement system for inward processing are eliminated.

A new exporter registration system is defined for the beneficiaries countries of the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) .
