Correction of the UZK and the UZK-DVO

On 30 September 2016, the Commission corrected the Union Customs Code (UCC) and the Regulation implementing the UCC (UCC-DVO). For foreign trade companies and freight forwarders who come into contact with customs law, this raises the question of the practical consequences of this legal change.

New sample form for Single Administrative Document & Supplementary forms

The corrigendum to Commission”Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446 of 28 July 2015 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council specifying in detail the provisions of the”Customs Code of the Union” – in short: the UBC Regulation – contains a new version of the specimen form for the Single Administrative Document and the corresponding supplementary forms for the paper-based customs declaration. You can access the new sample forms here.

UZK changes of a linguistic nature

The corrigendum to Regulation (EU) No 52/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 establishing the EU Customs Code was published in Official Journal L 267/2 on 30.09.2016. In doing so, the European Commission has above all corrected incorrect references and grammatical weaknesses in the Union Customs Code, which only came into force on 1 May 2016. Practical effects on economic operators should in most cases[bold] not be to be feared.
