Customs & Trade Facilitation

Further reform of the Unions Customs Code is needed now more than ever to stay current in a rapidly changing international trade environment. A realistic consultation timeline should be set, where industry expertise can prove most useful to regulators. To that end, the AmCham EU co-signed a letter alongside European trade associations in order to signal our support and provide suggestions. Above all, future proposals should result from an open and constructive dialogue among all stakeholders – including the Trade Contact Group – to set realistic timelines and customs procedures.
