Verification of approved exporter's and other registrations in the EU

Image by Mohamed Hassan from Pixabay

Reader's question: „Is there a database in the EU where we could verify the approved exporter's number, whether it is valid? If not, what would you advise how to verify it?“. We answer the question and also point out the liability of the importer and of the customs broker, and provide an overview of EU databases for verification of some other customs-related registration numbers.

Using importer’s knowledge to claim preferential treatment: a gift or a trap?
25-02-2021

Trade agreements have their own unique rules of origin to determine whether something has preferential origin. They also each have their own rules on how preferential origin should be evidenced. This can be confusing when a business is using multiple trade agreements. The focus of this article is on a particular method of evidencing preferential origin: importer’s knowledge. This is a relatively new concept in the EU, first appearing in the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, replicated in the UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) and now contained in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

Customs in Switzerland: reinvention through digitalization and paperless clearance
15-02-2021

With numerous innovations such as smartphone apps as well as the elimination of Swiss sub-headings in the customs tariff numbers, Swiss Customs aims to drive digital transformation. Since Switzerland is not part of the EU customs union, shipments of goods have always had to be cleared at the Swiss border. Now, cooperation with neighboring countries is to be promoted in order to exchange the data that is now available electronically with each other. This will speed up customs clearance on both sides. In this article, you will find out what innovations are in store for EU as well as Swiss companies.

EU-UK TCA: preferential origin vs returned goods relief
13-02-2021

European Commission released Guidance on preferential treatment, origin and customs procedures to assist EU businesses importing from and exporting to the UK. One of the questions clarified: “Goods originating in the EU are exported to the UK and released for free circulation there. They are not transformed. Can they come back to the EU without paying duties?”. The only suggestion is to customs clear them as returned goods. Does the same principle apply to all EU FTAs? What are the requirements for returned goods to claim “zero duty”? What about “zero VAT”? Other requirements like Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary?
