Compliant on Forced Labor? Prove It: The Expansion of U.S. Anti-Forced Labor Laws and Compliance Requirements for Importers
21-01-2024

Forced labor is on the rise worldwide. The United States is one of the largest importers of merchandise at risk of being produced with forced labor and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is committed to identifying products made with forced labor and preventing them from entering the United States. From FY 2022 to date, CBP’s forced labor enforcement has impacted over $ 2 billion worth of shipments. Clearly, companies have a lot at stake, and compliance with anti-forced labor requirements is critical not only from a corporate responsibility standpoint but due to the impact it may have on a company’s financial position.

UK customs-related updates: BTOM, CDS (II)
14-01-2024

Despite officially leaving the EU’s single market in January 2021, the UK has delayed introducing full border controls several times due to concerns over cost and disruption. However, we now know that these post-Brexit checks on plant and animal goods coming into the UK from EU countries will begin at the end of January 2024. What does this mean for businesses importing these goods into the UK? We provide a summary of the changes coming into effect and how the trader can prepare for these stricter border controls.

CBAM: History, objectives, scope, and its compatibility with international law (II)
03-01-2024

Note from the CCRM editors: The first part of the article provided an overview of the history, objectives and scope of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) introduced by the EU. It also examined the issue of whether the Paris Agreement on climate change foresees border adjustment measures by countries with high climate ambitions, and posed the following question: Is the CBAM fair towards developing countries? In this second part, the author provides an overview of the provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) which could justify the CBAM, his assessment of the CBAM Regulation, and shares a practical list of questions that companies can use in order to find out whether they are affected, and if so, how they can prepare to meet the CBAM requirements, in particular for the transitional period.

Used car parts - export of waste or goods for reuse?
10-12-2023

Today, we often talk about circular economy goals and the ambition to reduce waste by extending the life of products through reuse, repair, refurbishment or recycling. The legal framework is still under development. For example, there are provisions in the EU Combined Nomenclature for certain waste and scrap and for used cars, but no such provisions for used car parts - this can lead to difficulties when declaring these goods for the chosen customs procedure. Let us give an overview and discuss a current practical situation in Lithuania regarding the environmental and customs requirements for the declaration of parts of used cars for export.

What to expect if you transport goods to (or from) Russia and Belarus via Latvia?
06-12-2023

According to customs data, since the introduction of sanctions, Latvian customs performed 184,972 cargo document controls and 6,027 cargo physical controls. In 8,396 cases, customs prevented the movement of goods subject to sanctions. In 2022, 114 criminal proceedings have been initiated for the circumvention of sanctions, and in 2023, – 87 criminal proceedings. Considering the above, economic operators who move goods from or to Russia and Belarus or countries that could be used to circumvent sanctions should consider the consequences mentioned in this article.

Non-tariff measures: the biggest challenges in 2023
19-11-2023

Where do we draw the line between non-tariff measures that help governments achieve important goals (e.g. sustainability) and non-tariff barriers that unnecessarily restrict trade? How can SMEs ensure compliance in an increasingly complex regulatory environment (international sanctions, export controls, SPS, CBAM, REACH, forced labour, etc.)? As a distributor, how do you control the supply chain with multiple points of sale and resale, especially in relation to export control? These and other related questions were addressed at the 18th Authors' Meeting in an exchange of views between experts from different countries - the EU, the UK, the US, Brazil and Pakistan.

EU sanctions against RU and BY: non-tariff measures or non-tariff barriers?
19-11-2023

This article discusses the challenges faced by the Bulgarian automotive industry in the context of EU sanctions against Russia and Belarus. A national customs risk profile has been introduced, triggered by the export of certain automotive parts of HS Chapters 84 and 85 to Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan and others. The documents and information required from the consignee of the goods in the third country and the end user of the goods (if different) in order for these goods to be exported are problematic, as it is often very difficult, if not impossible, to obtain this data.

Non-tariff measures: their purpose and effect on trade
05-11-2023

According to UNCTAD, 90 % of global trade is subject to non-tariff measures (NTMs). NTMs can increase trade costs three times as much as tariffs. NTMs often lack transparency. This increases uncertainty and unpredictability in global trade. At the same time, NTMs can be beneficial for international trade, as they guarantee quality through certification, provide information about products through labelling, reflect a commitment to socially important issues through labelling and environmental standards, etc. This article briefly describes what non-tariff measures are, what purpose they fulfil and what impact they have.

REACH chemical regulations in the EU and the UK – international conflict?
02-11-2023

In the manufacturing industry, there are often complex supply chains where chemical substances cross borders between the UK and the EU several times. In this article we provide an overview of how REACH works in the EU (including the current revision) and in the UK, the implications for businesses and also address the Windsor Framework for Northern Ireland. Most companies use chemicals, sometimes even without realising it, therefore you need to check your obligations if you handle any chemicals in your industrial or professional activity. You might have some responsibilities under EU REACH or UK REACH or both.

REACH - the chemicals regulation in the EU and the UK
02-11-2023

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It is the main EU legislation for the regulation of chemicals in the EU. It is a single economic market measure applying in the European Economic Area (EEA). EU REACH ceased to have effect in Great Britain from 1 January 2021. The Government has put in place a separate UK REACH regime that applies to businesses that import, make, sell or distribute chemicals in Great Britain, whether as raw materials or in their finished state. Northern Ireland stays within the jurisdiction of EU REACH.

Ekspeditoriaus atsakomybė gabenant krovinius, kuriems taikoma veterinarinė kontrolė

Ekspeditorių pagrindinė funkcija yra krovinių gabenimo organizavimas. Pačios ekspedicinės įmonės dažniausiai nevykdo pervežimų, kaip nevykdo ir kitų funkcijų, pvz., nepildo muitinės deklaracijų. Atskirais atvejais pagal sutarties su užsakovu sąlygas, ekspeditorius gali prisiimti ir kitas atsakomybes. Aptarsime teismo bylą dėl ekspeditoriaus atsakomybės už krovinį, kuriam taikoma veterinarinė kontrolė ir neatitikties pasekmes. Ekspeditoriaus nuostoliai šioje situacijoje – virš 200 000 Eur.

The European Union’s blocking statute against extraterritorial legislation: an effective instrument for protecting the EU's economic interests?
13-08-2023

The recent ECJ judgment (July 2023) highlights the obsolescence of the legislative framework established by the Commission in 1996. In theory, the European Union’s blocking statute makes it possible to protect European companies against laws with extraterritorial reach. However, it appears that its scope and use have not achieved the objective initially set, namely, to neutralize the effects of foreign legislation.

Karinė eksportuotos prekės paskirtis nustatyta po eksporto: kam ir kokios kyla pasekmės?
02-07-2023

Prekės tarptautinėje prekyboje turi būti teisingai suklasifikuotos pagal ne vieną klasifikavimo sistemą (pvz., cheminių medžiagų klasifikavimas priskiriant CAS numerį). Muitinės specialistams kasdienybė dirbti su tarifiniu prekės klasifikavimu. Rusijai pradėjus karą Ukrainoje, prekių klasifikavimas įvertinant jų karinį panaudojimą, daugeliui taip pat tapo neišvengiama būtinybe. Kaip tai atlikti? Ar siekiant teisinio tikrumo verta kreiptis į Muitinės laboratoriją? Kas atsitiks, jei neteisingai priskirsite nekarinę paskirtį, o muitinė patikrinimo po eksporto metu nustatys, kad prekė buvo karinės paskirties? Apžvelkime aktualią teismų praktiką.
