REGULATION (EU) 2016/2339 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 14 December 2016

amending Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 laying down the Union Customs Code, as regards goods that have temporarily left the customs territory of the Union by sea or air

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 207 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure (1),

Whereas:

 

(1)

With a view to facilitating trade flows, Article 136 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) excludes the application of certain provisions of that Regulation to goods that have temporarily left the customs territory of the Union while moving between two Union ports or airports without stopping outside the customs territory of the Union. Those provisions govern the obligation to lodge the entry summary declaration, the obligation to notify the arrival of a sea-going vessel or an aircraft, the obligation to convey the goods to certain places and to present them to customs at the point where they are unloaded or transhipped, and temporary storage.

 

(2)

As a consequence of that exclusion, there is no legal basis for requiring goods that are unloaded or transhipped to be presented at the point where they re-enter the customs territory of the Union after having temporarily left it. Without such presentation, it may be more difficult for customs authorities to ensure the supervision of the goods concerned, and there is a risk both that import duty and other charges will not be correctly levied and that non-fiscal measures such as veterinary and phytosanitary controls will not be properly applied.

 

(3)

Article 136 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 should therefore be amended in order to take into account the different situations of non-Union and Union goods.

 

(4)

In order to ensure effective customs supervision of non-Union goods, the provisions governing the obligation to convey the goods to certain places, to present them to customs upon unloading or transhipment, and to wait for authorisation before unloading or transhipping, as well as the provisions governing temporary storage, should continue to apply to non-Union goods. Article 136 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 should therefore be amended to provide that only the rules governing the obligation to lodge the entry summary declaration and the obligation to notify the arrival of a sea-going vessel or an aircraft are excluded with regard to non-Union goods.

 

(5)

In order to ensure effective supervision of Union goods, Article 136 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 should distinguish between the situation of Union goods the status of which needs to be proven pursuant to Article 153(2) of that Regulation and Union goods that have retained their status by virtue of Article 155(2) of that Regulation.

 

(6)

As regards Union goods the status of which needs to be proven pursuant to Article 153(2) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013, only application of the rules governing the obligation to lodge the entry summary declaration and the obligation to notify the arrival of a sea-going vessel or an aircraft should be excluded, thereby allowing appropriate customs supervision.

 

(7)

The rules laid down in Article 139 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 governing the obligation to present the goods to customs upon unloading or transhipment and the obligation under Article 140 of that Regulation to wait for authorisation before unloading or transhipping the goods should likewise not apply...
