In air traffic, the new entry summary declarations were introduced on 1 March 2023, and it has been possible for transport companies to have a transition period until 1 July 2023 for changing over to the new declarations. For other air traffic operators, a transition period lasting until 1 October 2023 has been available. As of 1 October 2023, commodity codes must be provided on temporary storage declarations for goods arriving by air.
Your company can apply for a longer transition period for a justifiable reason. For example, such a reason may involve information from an entry summary declaration submitted to the EU ICS2 system that is re-used on a temporary storage declaration. You can send your free-form application and a statement of reasons to UCC(at)tulli.fi. In your application for a transition period, include the time period in question.
