Definition provided in the Kyoto Convention

“Temporary admission” means the Customs procedure under which certain goods can be brought into a Customs territory

  • conditionally relieved totally or partially from payment of import duties and taxes;
  • such goods must be imported for a specific purpose and
  • must be intended for re-exportation within a specified period and
  • without having undergone any change except normal depreciation due to the use made of them.

Definition provided in the Istanbul Convention

"Temporary admission" means the customs procedure under which certain goods (including means of transport) can be brought into a customs territory

  • conditionally relieved from payment of import duties and taxes and
  • without application of import prohibitions or restrictions of economic character;
  • such goods must be imported for a specific purpose and
  • must be intended for re-exportation within a specified period and
  • without having undergone any change except normal depreciation due to the use made of them.

How the provisions of both Conventions correlate?

The Kyoto Convention contains the basic provisions of all Customs procedures and includes the broad fundamental principles concerning temporary admission.

The Istanbul Convention on the other hand furnishes details of the procedures covered by the many conventions concerning specific goods that it replaces, as well as details about documents and guaranteeing associations. The Istanbul Convention also describes the ways in which temporary admission is applied. In addition, it is liberal in that it provides for the nonapplication of prohibitions and restrictions of economic character in relation to temporary admission of goods.

Prekių laikinojo saugojimo pažeidimai ir jų teisinio vertinimo aktualijos (III dalis): atsakomybės už deklaravimo pažeidimus taikymo ypatumai
04-09-2022

Straipsnyje aptariamos situacijos, susijusios su galimais laikinojo saugojimo deklaravimo netikslumais, neatitikimais ar klaidomis ir jų vertinimas aktualioje teismų praktikoje, kiek tai susiję su administracinės atsakomybės (baudų, nuobaudų skyrimu). Pavyzdžiui, tokia atsakomybė gali būti taikoma, jei deklaravus prekes laikinajam saugojimui, visas jų kiekis toliau tinkamai nenurodomas paskesnėje šioms prekėms parenkamos bei įforminamos muitinės procedūros deklaracijoje. Remiantis konkrečiais teismų praktikos pavyzdžiais, straipsnyje nagrinėjamos (pagal jų rūšis) faktinės situacijos, kurios gali nulemti administracinės atsakomybės taikymą netinkamai užbaigus prekių laikinąjį saugojimą, taip pat apibūdinama kokios teisinės pasekmės gali kilti kiekvienu atveju ir kuomet atsakomybė (teismų vertinimu) apskritai neturėtų būti taikoma arba švelninama (mažinant skiriamas baudas).

Alcohol turned into water in a customs warehouse: who pays the customs bill?
28-08-2022

A customs warehouse stored bottled alcohol (vodka). Customs audited the warehouse, took a sample, and found that there was water instead of vodka in the bottles! Customs ordered the warehouse to pay €308,455 customs debt (import duties and taxes, fines and interest). A dispute arose regarding who must pay the customs debt, as the customs warehouse is not obliged to take samples of the goods. Let's look at the clarification of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania (SACL) in this case.
