Urals added to Russia’s TIR ban

[ September 27, 2013   //   ]

Russia has extended its restriction on TIR guarantees to the Ural Customs region, as well as the Siberian and far east regions, the IRU reports. The move will affect the Chelyabinsk, Khanty-Mamsyisk, Koltsovo, Magnitogorsk, Tyumen, Uralskaya Operatyvnaya, Yamalo-Nenets and Yekaterinburg regional customs offices. Although the exact scope of the measures is not yet known, Customs offices concerned are likely to illegally refuse to proceed with TIR operations without extra guarantees.

The move follows Russia’s decision to postpone a similar restriction for its entire terriroty, originally scheduled for 14 September, until 1 December.
