Transportation of goods placed under the customs transit procedure will be controlled electronically

As part of the implementation of Strategic Directions for the development of the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025, the Eurasian Economic Commission continues to improve customs regulations.
The EEC Expert Group on the development of the integrated information system of the Eurasian Economic Union in terms of common processes in the customs sphere has begun to consider a set of technological documents for the implementation of information interaction between customs authorities to control the transportation of goods placed under the customs transit procedure.

The Customs Cooperation Unit of the Commission continues to implement the provisions of the Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union, which provides for the transition of customs operations to paperless document management. In particular, the foundations are being laid for the technical implementation of the task to introduce in the EAEU a cross-border, legally significant e-document flow.    

By 2025, the EAEU plans to increase the level of information exchange between customs authorities, which was previously organized at the site of the Joint Board of Customs Services of the Union states. The main innovations will include the use of electronic digital signature in information exchange, expansion of information composition and functionality of interaction.

Eliminating the need to submit paper documents to the customs authorities will simplify the performance of certain customs operations related to the control of goods placed under the customs transit procedure.

  Department Daniyar Imanaliev noted that "the issues of digital interaction of all regulatory authorities at the border are of great importance in the development of digital transport corridors. The use of legally relevant electronic documents in customs transit will speed up the processing and import of goods, as well as their end-to-end movement across territories of the Member States. This, in turn, will have a positive impact on the development of the transit potential of the entire Union."
