Adobe Stock

Prohibitions mean inadmissibility, exclusion of the possibility to import or export goods. Restrictions are specific requirements or conditions that are mandatory for the import or export of certain goods. These may be quantitative restrictions, licensing, and export control or documentary requirements, etc. For example, the release for free circulation in the EU of imported substances listed in Annex I of the Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 on substances that deplete the ozone layer is subject to quantitative limits (quotas).

Legal provisions are set out in Articles 134 and 267 of the Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 (the Union Customs Code): goods brought into the customs territory of the Union or taken out of it shall, where applicable, be subject to such prohibitions and restrictions as are justified on grounds of, inter alia,

  • public morality, public policy or public security;
  • the protection of the health and life of humans, animals or plants;
  • the protection of the environment;
  • the protection of national treasures possessing artistic, historic or archaeological value;
  • the protection of industrial or commercial property;

including controls

  • on drug precursors;
  • on goods infringing certain intellectual property rights
  • and cash;

as well as to the implementation

  • of fishery conservation and management measures
  • and of commercial policy measures.

Blocking Regulation: the first step towards solving the conflict of laws between EU and US sanctions
20-01-2022

The Court of Justice of the EU has interpreted for the first time the Blocking Regulation. The ruling confirms that it is possible to terminate contracts with a US designated person without providing reasons. However, in civil proceedings it is for the EU party to prove that, when it sought to terminate a contract, it did not seek to comply with US sanctions in the absence of an authorisation by the European Commission.

Requirements for labelling of vaping products (vapes) on the territory of Russia
17-12-2021

Until recently, e-cigarettes and their accessories were not subject to precise, unambiguous regulation under Russian law, including requirements on packaging labelling. As a matter of practice, until recently, some market players were attempting to mitigate compliance risks stemming from the aforementioned legislative gap as to labelling of the products in question by adhering to regulations applicable to tobacco products. Nevertheless, recently, quite substantial changes were made to legislation governing nicotine-containing products, including e-cigarettes.
