What is exportation?

The export procedure allows exit of Community goods from the EC customs territory. From a customs point of view, exported Community goods change their status to non-Community goods. For non-Community goods, the operation is called 're-exportation'.

The export procedure entails the application of all exit formalities, including, where applicable, the payment of export refunds and the presentation of export licences.
