Comments on the proposal for a regulation amending Council Regulation No. 2913/92 establishing the Community Customs Code

Published: 20 April 2004

Policies & Issues: Trade

The following paper suggests specific amendments to the proposal for a regulation amending the Community Customs Code. The amendments we propose, would, we believe, both contribute to simplifying and modernising these legislative procedures while, at the same time, ensuring security on Community territory.

Orgalime particularly opposes the proposal of asking for a summary declaration prior to any import into and export from the Community’s customs territory.
