The meeting of the EBA Customs Committee took place with the participation of Director of the Department of Customs Policy of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine (Minfin) Moskalenko O.P. and Deputy Director of the Department of Food Safety and Veterinary Medicine of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection (Derzhprod) Sayenko A.M.
Issues that were discussed during the meeting:
- the first results of a “single window” at the Customs;
- importation into the territory of Ukraine the food products of animal origin, in particular, dairy products, as for personal use in hand luggage, but in fact for the purpose of further commercial realization.
Following the results of the discussion, we have reached an agreement on the settlement of the situation connected with the delay of the customs clearance of goods due to non-compliance of the norms of the current legislative and regulatory acts of various state bodies that control the cargo crossing the customs border by amending the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 1031, No. 1030, No. 451, No. 364.
The Minfin, together with the Derzhprod, will prepare a clarification letter regarding the procedure for completing the customs declaration.
