EEC Board to determine specifics of filling in correction of declaration for electronic commerce goods

At its meeting on September 23, the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission provided an opportunity for the EEC Board to determine the specifics of filling in a correction of the goods declaration for express cargo applied during pilot projects on foreign e-commerce in the Eurasian Economic Union countries.

Such a decision arises from the established law enforcement practice and will allow making changes to the previously declared data on electronic commerce goods. This may be required, for example, during preliminary customs declaration, when the data is clarified after importing goods or based on the customs control results. In case of any discrepancies revealed, one can apply for a change in the previously submitted declaration upon receipt of the parcels.

The decision will allow developing the regulatory framework for customs regulation when transporting this category of goods, making the declaration mechanism more convenient for business and the end consumer.

For reference

In accordance with Disposition No. 7 of the Commission's Council “On Individual Issues of Conducting Pilot Projects (Experiments) in the Field of Foreign E-Trade in Goods in the Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union” dated April 5, 2021, from July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022, (with possible extension) an appropriate pilot project (experiment) is being carried out in the Union Member States.

In August 2021, the Commission adopted key documents for conducting an experiment in the field of foreign e-commerce, including the specifics of filling in a goods declaration for express cargo.
