Does board painting and impregnation confer non-preferential origin on a product?
31-07-2019

Reader's question: We import boards from Belarus, impregnate and paint them, and export from the EU. Could we apply for a certificate of EU's non-preferential origin? I will answer the question and also look at the interpretations of the European Court of Justice as to how the term 'an important stage of manufacture' should be understood.

31-07-2019

The terms used in customs legislation are often different from the usual ones, for example: computers are called automatic data-processing machines; “ivory“ refers to the tusks of elephants, hippopotamus, walrus, narwhal and wild boar, rhinoceros horns and the teeth of all animals. Let's look at how under the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/927 the basket of wire and paper has become a textile product.

Container scanning: analysis of the mechanism’s impact on the Customs clearance procedure established in Cameroon
30-06-2019

This article assesses the impact of this mechanism in the Customs clearance procedure, focusing, in turn, on its efficiency, how it is generally perceived by private‑sector importers and stakeholders, and the difficulties created by its implementation.

Customs and industry collaborate to develop a unified file format for non-intrusive inspection devices
30-06-2019

In April 2019, the WCO SAFE Working Group endorsed a document providing a summary of the technical specification for the proposed unified X-ray file format for non-intrusive inspection (NII) devices, codenamed the Unified File Format (UFF).

Fighting illicit financial flows: Brazilian Customs´ approach
30-06-2019

The role of Customs has become increasingly complex over the years. On the one hand, international corporations and supply chains actors in general have put pressure on governments to shape a new operating model at the border, based on simplifying procedures and expediting the release of traded goods. On the other hand, governments are demanding that Customs and other border enforcement entities implement more and more regulations aimed at building a fair marketplace and protecting their citizens’ health as well as the environment.

Illicit trade in waste: it is time to raise the alarm and mobilize
30-06-2019

According to the United Nations Environment Programme, the continent of Asia is the world’s largest dumping ground for illegally traded waste. The region also grapples with the enormous amount of plastic waste it generates on its own, which has already wreaked havoc on local ecosystems. In fact, a 2017 Ocean Conservancy Report noted that China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam have been dumping more plastic into the oceans than the rest of the world combined.

Sutartis su Japonija: kilmės dokumento surašymas ir naujovės
31-05-2019

Nuo 2019 m. vasario 1 d. įsigaliojo Europos Sąjungos ir Japonijos ekonominės partnerystės susitarimas (toliau tekste – Sutartis), paskelbtas OL 2018 L 330. Tai reiškia, kad Japonijos preferencinės kilmės prekėms, importuojamoms į Eurpos Sąjungą, tame tarpe ir į Lietuvą, gali būti taikomi lengvatiniai (preferenciniai) importo muitai. Sutartyje įvesta svarbių naujovių, netaikytų ankstesnėse ES pasirašytose laisvosios prekybos sutartyse, apžvelkime kai kurias jų.
