Transit manual (EU)
Transit manual - a detailed description of the common and the Union transit procedures
The action plan for transit in Europe (COM(97) 188 final, 30.4.1997) called for a manual containing a detailed description of the common and the Union transit procedures and clarifying the role of both administrations and traders.
The Transit manual was first published in May 2004 by the European Commission. The consolidated version of the manual is aligned with the Union Customs Code, which applies as of 1 May 2016, and is updated whenever new developments in the common and Union transit systems make this necessary.
