20-01-2021

In view of the continuing spread of the virus that causes the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for and imports of protective equipment in the EU Member States has increased and continues to increase, increasing the workload of both customs brokers and customs. In order to facilitate and speed up the customs clearance of such goods and to enable more accurate statistics to be collected, new TARIC subheadings were introduced corresponding to the more detailed characteristics of the different face masks. We also provide an overview of standards that specify requirements for such goods.

Privalomoji tarifinė informacija (PTI): teisinio reglamentavimo ypatumai ES bei naujovės Lietuvoje
24-10-2020

Pagal Sąjungos muitinės kodekso nuostatas, privalomoji prekių tarifinė informacija yra apibrėžiama kaip raštiškas muitinės sprendimas dėl tarifinio prekių klasifikavimo, kurį valstybių narių muitinės išduoda ekonominių operacijų vykdytojui, gavusios jo prašymą ir kuriuo įpareigojama taikyti konkretų jame nurodytų prekių rūšių tarifinį klasifikavimą. 2019 m. Lietuvoje įsigaliojo naujos privalomosios prekių tarifinės informacijos (PTI) išdavimo taisyklės, aktualios visiems prekes iš trečiųjų valstybių (ne ES narių) importuojantiems asmenims. Straipsnyje aptariame kokie praktiniai ir teisiniai klausimai pastaruoju metu kyla šioje muitų teisės srityje tiek ES lygmeniu, tiek ir Lietuvos Respublikoje, ypač taikant naująsias PTI išdavimo taisykles.

Recent tariff classification issues in Latvia: copper alloy ingots
24-09-2020

National courts often make use of the possibility to seek a preliminary ruling from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). The Supreme Court of the Republic of Latvia recently raised a very technical question, which, however, concerns the general interpretation of a provision of the Combined Nomenclature of the EU regarding classification of the copper alloy ingots. The article overviews the case and its importance for the uniform tariff classification of goods in the EU Member States.
