Software installation and origin of goods
11-09-2022

Reader's question: ‘We export certain devices to Ukraine. The product-specific rule is based on the value criterion. Can the value of expensive software, which was created and developed in the EU, be counted as the value of originating materials?’ To answer this question, we review various aspects of the topic, which is becoming increasingly important, as more and more goods do not function without software.

Post-clearance verification of preferential origin of goods
17-04-2022

Customs may carry out post-clearance verification of the preferential origin of goods. As a result, a letter from customs might appear on the importer's desk stating that the preferential tariff treatment has been denied. In this article, we look at what is the process of post-clearance verification of preferential origin set out in some of the free trade agreements of Canada, the UK and the EU. Also, we provide practical examples and suggestions on how the preferential origin-related risk could be managed by importers.

Customs issues related to trade in purported forced labor
03-03-2022

While many countries of the world find it morally correct to act regarding the importation of forced labor products, in the case of Xinjiang cotton the actions will be very difficult to achieve. Countries may enact “feel good” laws forbidding importation of such products and international bodies can develop guidelines and principles in commerce, but without the proper enforcement tools nothing can be accomplished unless these laws and guidelines can be enforced.

Non-government controlled territories and free trade agreements
28-02-2022

As is well known, the war started by Russia in Ukraine affects a wide range of areas, both security and economic. It may also affect aspects related to imports and exports between Israel and Ukraine, which have signed a free trade agreement (FTA) in 2019. The reminder on that comes from the European Commission, which on February 23rd, 2022 released a notice to importers regarding imports from the non-government controlled territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts of Ukraine.

11-02-2022

As of September 1st, 2021, there are new rules of origin in the European structure of the Pan-Euro-Mediterranean (PEM) Convention that apply in parallel to the previous rules of origin as part of a transitional phase. They are called 'transitional rules'. The new rules of origin provide breathing space in the machinery sector (HS chapters 84, 85 and 90) for those companies that have to work with small margins.

Three pitfalls to avoid in 2022 when moving goods between the EU and the UK
23-11-2021

It has almost been a year since the end of the Brexit transition period, meaning most businesses will have started settling comfortably into their new routine. However, it is important to remember that the new trading relationship between the UK and EU is still evolving and 2022 is the host of some big changes. For example, certain easements that were introduced to facilitate trade will expire, multiple new systems will be introduced, and sanitary and phytosanitary controls will commence for the first time. So, if you think your business has mastered trading across the new border, then think again. In this article, we outline three pitfalls that could disrupt your supply chain and what you can do to avoid them.

Insiders who follow trade and Customs reforms in China may have noticed the emergence, in recent years, of new expressions and terms in this domain, such as “self-service printing of certificates of origin”, the Electronic Origin Data Exchange System (EODES) and “intelligent examination”. This article explains each of these terms.

Overseas countries and territories: developments after Brexit
23-10-2021

Editorial word. Customs legislation applies in a customs territory, so knowledge and understanding of territories are significant. They are of various types, such as the customs territory of the Union, special fiscal territories, third countries, as well as overseas countries and territories (OCTs). The territories change and the most recent example is Brexit: when the UK's customs territory was established, for example, Northern Ireland became part of two customs territories. The OCTs were impacted by Brexit as well. The EU used the opportunity to review relations with OCTs and adopted new legislation. Mrs. Zofija Pečiukonienė kindly agreed to overview the developments.

Changes in the application of the Pan-Euro-Mediterranean (PEM) rules of preferential origin from 1 September 2021
28-09-2021

The contracting parties to the PEM Convention have agreed on the application of the transitional rules pending the application of the modernized PEM Convention. This opens the possibility for economic operators to choose between the rules of preferential origin set out in the PEM Convention and the transitional rules. The latter rules are in many cases more flexible and simpler. Let us look at this new possibility.

Controversies and peculiarities regarding application of rules of origin in EU Member States: practice in the Republic of Lithuania
25-09-2021

The article discusses the peculiarities of the practical application of European Union (EU) rules on customs origin in the EU Member State - the Republic of Lithuania and presents the current practice of national authorities in this area (in tax disputes related to the origin of imported goods), emphasizes its peculiarities and differences from practices in other EU Member States. The analysis performed and described in the article substantiates that in the Republic of Lithuania the possible sources of proof of customs origin of goods are assessed and interpreted in a unique and rather formal way. Besides, the burden of proving the origin of imported goods and its distribution between customs and importer is understood specifically and can be considered as more favourable to importers than the usual practice at the EU level.
