EEC continued to discuss new customs declaration form

A regular meeting of the Eurasian Economic Commission's Working Group on improving the procedure for customs operations in respect of express cargo and international mail was held on September 19.

The experts of the Commission and the Eurasian Economic Union States continued discussing some approaches to preparing a new normative act of the Commission, determining the form and the procedure for completing the declaration for e-commerce goods, in view of the forthcoming amendments to the EAEU Customs Code.

The meeting discussed the issues of specifying general information in the declaration, as well as individual information on e-commerce goods. Such approaches are worked out with due regard to the practical application of the Commission's decisions adopted for implementing the Union's pilot project in the field of foreign e-commerce.

For reference

Decision No. 10 of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council dated November 19, 2021 approved the Action Plan (roadmap) to create favorable conditions for developing e-commerce within the Eurasian Economic Union.

In accordance with Paragraph 2 of the Roadmap, the Eurasian Economic Commission, jointly with the EAEU States, should prepare, inter alia, an act of the Commission determining the form and the procedure for completing the declaration for e-commerce goods, based on the competence envisaged in the draft Protocol on amendments to the Treaty on the Union Customs Code (as regards the regulation of foreign e-commerce).

Decisions No. 93 and No. 94 of the Commission's Board dated August 3, 2021 determined special aspects of filling out the declaration for express cargoes to ensure that the pilot project (experiment) in the field of foreign e-commerce is conducted in the EAEU countries.
