Union Customs Code (UCC)

Procedure & Tariffs

The UCC is the legislative key for customs formalities within the European Union. The UCC was adopted on 9 October 2013 as Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council. It entered into force on 30 October 2013 although most of its substantive provisions apply from 1 May 2016. Authorities established a transitory period of 3 years. From May 1, 2019 the terminals must control customs status of all units that leave the terminal.

This new regulation implies the assumption of new obligations and procedures, and therefore, they force terminals to expand their services, that must be provided mandatory by law.
