This presentation highlights the changes in customs enforcement due to the increased use of technology, in particular the innovations in this field. Whereas technology up till today still is being used as a supporting tool for customs in detection of goods and its authentication to customs declaration data, in the near future one will see so-called autodetection of data and images.

Frank Heijmann is the co-author of the book 'Customs: Inside Anywhere, Insights Everywhere', published in 2023. This book describes how Customs have searched and found ultimately a proper balance between apparently contradictory tasks: on the one hand stopping international trade at the border to collect taxes and protect society's safety and security, on the other hand minimizing logistic delays and facilitating legitimate trade as as much as possible.

The presentation gives an insight into the contents of the book. This video is a recording of a presentation given by Frank Heijmann at the European Conference for Customs Practitioners in Vilnius, Lithuania (May 2023).

EU Customs Data Model (EUCDM)
31-12-2023

The electronic customs declaration consists of data elements that should be harmonised worldwide so that customs can verify the data flow from the exporting country to the importing country. The World Customs Organisation has developed the WCO data model, which provides a universal language for cross-border data exchange. The EU has adopted this model for its own purposes and for trans-European use.

UCC e-systems: Updated implementation deadlines
26-12-2023

The remaining electronic systems provided for in the Union Customs Code (UCC) will be implemented in 2024 and 2025. The introduction of a new customs system can have various implications for a company, depending on its specific activity: time savings when paper documents become electronic (e.g. T2L), significant financial savings thanks to new simplification possibilities (e.g. centralised clearance), the need to adapt company processes and software to the transition to the new systems, or simply the potential for disruption during implementation (for example, the introduction of new services of the Intelligent Customs Declaration System (iMDAS) this month in Lithuania has led to a sad joke in business community that the only Christmas wish is a working iMDAS), etc. On 15 December, the European Commission adopted a new work programme to replace the previous one. Let's take a look at the updated implementation deadlines for the systems planned for the coming years. If you work with these systems, you should think about how they will or might affect your organisation and prepare accordingly.

e-Certificate of Origin: the failing vision of efficiency and a possible solution
26-12-2023

The World Customs Organization has published a comprehensive study on the digitalisation of the Certificate of Origin (CO). This article provides a short summary of the existing CO issues and suggests some solutions that could help achieve the long-term digitalisation goals – such as the framework for trusted digital signatures currently used in the EU.

Chat GPT and Google Bard: How customs brokers can use these AI tools
01-10-2023

Artificial Intelligence (AI) - a topic that was barely heard of last year, it now seems to be a topic that appears at almost every conference and can be applied in every field. When we heard about artificial intelligence and its availability on the market, it seemed so distant and unheard of, and when the first reports appeared in the press, we certainly did not think that we, as customs brokers, would be able to apply it to our own operations. I will not hide the fact that the first people to try out the CHAT GPT tool in our company were our colleagues who are the most interested in information technology and innovations in the market.

Customs HI&AI: new crisis or new opportunities?
01-10-2023

'It is December 2039, and various newsbots push the following content to their subscribers: ... Customs is being abolished next January (2040) when the EU's new customs system [Artificial Customs Intelligence Depository, ACID] comes into operation ... The new system means that most of the approximately 5,500 Customs employees will lose their jobs.' This is how the introduction to the book "Customs Inside Anywhere, Insights Everywhere" by Frank Heijmann and John Peters begins [1].
