It is also possible to replace it by applying for an authorisation to use an electronic transport document as a transit declaration, without a guarantee.

The revised transit declarations (new interfaces to the guarantee and export systems) will in Finland be submitted to a new Customs system, in the EU timetables deployment planned for 2021–2023.  In the EU timetables, the transit declaration changes relating to declarations for safety and security data are planned for 2024–2025.
