This course provides understanding and ability for customs specialists to execute activities related to the special procedures in the EU, with the exception of the transit procedure. Patrick Nieveler: 'The complexity of global supply chains is increasing in each economic sector. Therefore, it is important for businesses to use duty suspension regimes with effective tools and automated processes.' 

The course is one of the modules of the extensive Customs clearance and trade compliance in the EU training (see the brochure).

Lessons

The course consists of seven lessons:

  1. Overview of special procedures
  2. Placing goods under a special procedure
  3. Inward processing
  4. Storage
  5. Outward processing
  6. End-use
  7. Temporary admission

In the resources section you will find slides and recommended reading. In addition, you can read articles of interest on the platform during the entire learning period (after purchasing the course, you will get access to the articles).

Upon successful completion of the quiz questions (more than 60% of the questions must be answered correctly), you will receive a certificate of completion.

Outcome

After taking this course, the learner shall:

  • Demonstrate awareness and knowledge about different types of special procedures;
  • Demonstrate in-depth knowledge and understanding of the steps and tasks associated to successfully placing goods under a special procedure.

Time

Please plan to dedicate around 3 hours for learning.

The UCC offers the option to combine various special procedures. For example, companies using OP (outward processing) are not always clearing OP goods directly into free circulation but into a bonded warehouse.

Patrick Nieveler

Knowledge of customs procedures can lead to significant benefits, while the opposite can often be a waste of time and money.

EU Customs Reform: What will change in the import process?
02-05-2024

This article continues the overview of certain aspects of the EU Customs Reform. In a previous article, the author described why and how the Commission intends to impose the obligations for importing goods on a single person, the importer in three variants: the regular importer, the deemed importer (for e-commerce) and the indirect customs representative representing both types of importers. In this article, the author focuses on the proposed import procedure, which consists of several consecutive steps.

EU Customs Reform: Who is the ‘importer’ and what are their responsibilities?
21-04-2024

Continuing a series of articles on the main legal aspects of the proposed EU customs reform, the author focuses on a key player in the import process: the importer. The Commission proposal is based on a new vision of this actor and his responsibilities. This article describes and analyses the three variants under this concept: the basic rules for importers, the special rules for deemed importers, and the rules for indirect customs representatives who are treated as the (deemed) importer. Furthermore, it addresses the question of what happens when the wrong person has been named as an importer by an actor in the supply chain or a customs representative.
