Arrival and exit declarations
Electronic safety and security data must be submitted to Customs before goods are imported into or exported from the European Union territory. The safety and security data are details about the traders, goods, transports and routes.
The transport company is always responsible for submitting the arrival and exit declarations, even if it uses a representative to submit them. The time limits for submitting declarations are based on which mode of transport is used and the transport routes.
