Press release

The Import Declaration Service automatically generates a packaging type code for a customs clearance. The person who sees to the customs clearance cannot change the packaging type, and the customs clearance cannot be corrected in this regard. Customs does not add entries on corrections to decisions on release. When a decision on release concerning importation by a private customer is included as a receipt in the warehouse bookkeeping, the correct packaging type is sufficient information. A sufficient goods description and the correct packaging type code and quantity are required for bookkeeping.
