  • Rules to issue a long-term supplier’s declaration have been simplified (Art 62)
  • exporters have more time to get a REX number for CETA (Art 68)
  • International Road Transport is better secured in financial terms (Art 163)


The Union Customs Code (UCC) is part of the modernisation of customs and serves as the new framework regulation on the rules and procedures for customs throughout the EU. Its substantive provisions have entered into force on 1 May 2016. More
