Position paper - CTF - AmCham EU position on UCC implementing provisions

2 Sep 2015
Customs & Trade Facilitation

EU decision-makers should ensure that these provisions do not harm European businesses and trade.

AmCham EU welcomes the implementation of the Union Customs Code (UCC), which aims to increase the efficiency of customs and provide benefits for legitimate trade. We are however concerned by a number of elements of the UCC implementing provisions that will harm rather than be beneficial to business. This paper outlines particular issues surrounding valuation, safety and security, postal parity, free movement of goods and data requirements for simplified procedures.
