Import

Function Case Situation in 2018 Changes in stages in 2018 and onwards
Import Customs value A customs value declaration (D.V.1) must be lodged for consignments worth more than 20 000 euros if the customs declaration has been lodged manually with a SAD. The customs value declaration on paper will no longer be used when all declarations must be lodged electronically, according to the EU Work Programme from 1 October 2020 at the earliest.
Import Binding tariff information (BTI) The applications are made using form 677s (in Finnish), which is sent to the Customs Registry Office. The applications will be submitted electronically to the EU online service and EBTI through which the decisions can be obtained electronically. Deployment planned for 2019.
Import Origin When preferential treatment is applied for based on origin (GSP), either the authority of the exporting country endorses the Form.A or the exporter in the GSP country must be registered in the REX system of the EU. When applying for preferential treatment based on origin (GSP), the exporter must register in the REX system of the EU to make out a statement on origin. The REX system will continue to be deployed in stages in 2018–2020; EU has granted country-specific transitional periods to their beneficiaries until 30 June 2020.
Import Authorisation to lodge the import declaration to a Member State other than where the import goods are located when the declaration is lodged The operator may still have a valid single authorisation for simplified procedures (SASP), and an AEOC can apply for a centralised clearance authorisation, for which new operational models are yet to be determined. The AEOC can apply for a centralised clearance authorisation when the activity is based on the new operational models, e.g. electronic data exchange between the Member States and new declaration formats. Deployment in stages from 2021.
Import Process and declarations The paper-based procedure, i.e. the SAD form may be used when lodging an import declaration.

All customs declarations must be lodged electronically in accordance with the new data content; exceptions apply to goods brought in by travellers. Deployment according to national decision.

Import Process and declarations A consignment note may be used as a simplified consignment-specific customs declaration in periodic declaration. A simplified customs declaration must be lodged electronically for each consignment covered by the periodic declaration. Deployment according to national decision.
