Do you want to import or export goods or move them in transit?

This section of the customs information portal features several very frequent scenarios of customs transactions. They cover the import of goods into and their export from the European Union as well as the movement of goods in transit.

These scenarios aim to break a typical normal customs transaction down into its main stages and to show, for each step, the tasks that the actors involved have to carry out. The descriptions take due account of the changes brought about by the entry into force on 1 July 2009 of the security amendment to the Community Customs Code.
