The German Forwarding and Logistic Union DSLV reminds that the new EU Customs Code (UDC) will be applicable from 1 May 2016. It will not bring radical changes immediately. The transitional provisions and arrangements for the transition period until full implementation of the IT processes are expected to be released in this spring.
Although the new Union Customs Code will be in force as of 1 May, this applies only for fully IT-independent rules, for example, the reformed customs debt law, related liability issues and the temporary storage. The gradual implementation of the customs IT processes should be completed until the end of 2020, nevertheless, further delays are likely.
The implementing rules replacing the current implementing the Customs Code (CCIP), have been published on 29 December 2015 in the EU Official Journal and on the Internet. Companies must in future not only to comply with these provisions, but also to deal with a parallel rules whose design is at the European level in the vote and which regulates the transition period until full implementation of IT processes and is expected to be published in the spring of 2016th
Whether the variety of rules to be observed will lead to a “modernization of customs legislation”, is more than questionable, says DSLV.
