This website has been created by the European Commission's DG for Taxation and Customs Union, in close collaboration with representatives from national customs administrations and trade. It aims to clearly communicate information for traders on the safety and security amendment to the Community Customs Code. It is a forerunner to the comprehensive European Customs Information Portal foreseen at a later stage.
The portal brings together in one website a variety of relevant information, such as EU legislation and explanatory documents on the safety and security amendment of the Community Customs Code, news items, and links to databases, documents and procedures used by national customs administrations. It also explains through the use of interactive “model transactions” the main steps in standard import, export and transit customs procedures into/out of the EU.
