The State of Play of the EU Customs Reform

24 May 2024

Explaining the proposal of the European Commission and informing about the discussions in the European Council

The discussion on EU Customs reform covers several critical aspects, including harmonising knowledge, implementing a data hub system, advocating for a standardised EU model. Understanding the background of customs union law, addressing temporary storage reduction, and providing clarification on indirect representation are also crucial. Supporting women in trade, considering SME perspectives, and navigating post-Brexit challenges are additional considerations. Concerns about global protectionism trends, streamlining IT systems, and exploring specific trade agreements further enrich the discourse. Discussions on data quality in the context of tools like the EU Customs Data Hub underscore the importance of knowledge and training, alongside technological solutions, in ensuring quality decisions. We will go through the proposal of the European Commission and inform about the discussion in the European Council.

Speakers include representatives from the DG TAXUD of the European Commission, the French trade facilitation organisation ODASCE, the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the EU, the Institute of Export and International Trade, the Lithuanian Customs Practitioners Association, and European Shippers’ Council.
