Wise Persons Group recommendations: what is the future of EU customs?

Picture from the Report by the Wise Persons Group on the Reform of the EU Customs Union – Brussels March 2022

The group consists of 12 representatives of business, science and state institutions. The result of their work is presented in the report published on 31 March 2022, reviewing both the current customs situation and the origins of the systemic problems, as well as providing 10 recommendations for a major breakthrough.

If the debtor is not liable to pay the customs debt, must the guarantor pay it?
16-05-2024

Last year, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has issued a judgment on interpreting and clarifying the provisions of the Community Customs Code. This article seeks to explore the particular field of customs law within the EU, focusing on the rulings of the ECJ on customs debt, debtors' obligations and notification procedures. Through an examination of the case and its implications, the author's aim is to provide insights into the practical implications of the case for businesses and regulators alike operating under the current legislation.

Law and case law news: what shouldn't a customs professional miss?
05-05-2024

Customs law is the rules of the game for everyone involved in customs and international trade. These rules are not always clear and unambiguous, do not always meet the expectations of those involved and are sometimes even imprecise. This leads to difficulties in their application and forces the courts to intervene. This review contains some interesting insights and exceptional examples of legislation and court cases from Europe and around the world (Belgium, Lithuania, Bulgaria, WB, Brazil, USA, Ukraine, Israel), which have been presented at the 21th Authors’ Meeting.
