EEC has defined peculiarities of customs control of goods imported into EAEU


Members of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) made decisions in the areas of customs administration and industrial policy of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) at the meeting held on March 27.
The EEC Board has determined some special aspects of customs control of the declared value of goods imported into the EAEU.

The Commission’s decision specifies the documents that can be requested by customs authorities during the control of the customs value of goods. Among them are manufacturer price lists, price quotations, documents on payment of the imported goods, shipping (packing) lists and others.

The document contains requirements for the information already available to the customs authorities, which can be used to confirm the value of goods imported into the Union.

Such information includes data on comparable goods, information on transactions with identical, homogeneous goods, goods of the same class or type, or some data on stock-exchange quotations, indices, auction prices, and some other data.

The EEC Board decision specifies the circumstances showing some marks of unreliability of the declared data on customs value of goods as well as situations when such documents and data are not verified.

Such marks include, for example, pricing data mismatch in the same document, lower goods prices compared to the prices for identical goods imported under identical import conditions.

Price information will not be verified if previously imported goods are identical, have been imported under the terms of the same foreign economic agreement or contract, and the terms of this transaction have not been changed.

The decision was made to implement the Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union, and it will ensure alignment to the customs value control procedure.

The EEC Board has decided to inform the Russian Federation on the need to make corrections in the Order of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation dated December 10, 2012 No. 580н.

This document should be aligned with the single regulations of the Union for granting industrial subsidies.
It shall be recalled that the Order of Russian Ministry of Labor had established that the expenses of the insured for the purchase of special clothing shall be reimbursed if such clothing is manufactured in the Russian Federation, and is made of fabrics, knitted fabrics or nonwovens originating from the Russian Federation as well.
