This is a “coffee break” article in our new series featuring thought leaders in the field of customs. I’m delighted to speaking with Timothy Lyons, a barrister and Queen’s Counsel (England and Wales), a barrister in the Republic of Ireland and a member of the Bar of Brussels. Those studying EU customs law as well as customs practitioners will most likely know Timothy through his book, EU Customs Law, published by the Oxford EU Law Library.

Many interesting and important aspects around the topic were raised by the participants: the challenge of wording and even punctuation used; the importance of understanding the background of legal changes; interpreting law vs first understanding what product we have; the lack of legal clarity in defining responsibilities and liabilities; the need for more simplifications; and how the law shall evolve to help to achieve the vision of the worlds’ most effective border.
