Changes in Customs’ systems on 25 September 2021 – information for message declarants

Publication date 10.9.2021 9.00
Press release

Customs’ systems will be upgraded on 25 September 2021. Customs’ message declarants are advised to please note the upcoming changes.

Intrastat system

  • Customs provides information on the changes to the collection of Intrastat information in the Intrastat newsletter. Subscribe to newsletter and choose “Intrastat - statistical declarations”.

New customs clearance system (UTU)

  • It will be possible for credit customers to lodge declarations for excise products also as a cash customer via the Customs Clearance Service.

The system alterations may cause delays in the message exchange and increase the number of incorrect messages. This in turn increases the number of declarations Customs has to process, which may temporarily result in longer response times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes.
