Still no clarity on Union Customs Code warns ESC

[ October 2, 2015   //   ]

Discussions on the Union Customs Code (UCC) still cannot be finalized as the European Commission has been forced to revise the legislation on transitional measures, warns the European Shippers Council. As the UCC is due to enter into gradually into force from 1 May 2016, this will reduce the time for implementation for traders, says the ESC, adding that the new legislation will be less clear in certain areas. The ESC said it was monitor the process to ensure that important principles like centralised clearance and self-assessment will be introduced in a practical way.
