Goods delivered to and from offshore installations
Goods delivered from or to offshore installations are declared in a statistical declaration. ‘Offshore installation’ means equipment and devices installed and stationary in the sea outside the statistical territory of any Member State. An offshore installation is considered to belong to the Member State that has exclusive rights to exploit the seabed or subsoil in the area in question.
Goods delivered to offshore installations’ means the delivery of products for the crew and for the operation of engines, machines and other equipment of offshore installation. ‘Goods obtained from or produced by offshore installations’ means products extracted from the seabed or subsoil, or manufactured by the offshore installation.
Upon arrival, goods delivered from another Member State to a Finnish offshore installation or from another Member State’s offshore installation to Finland or from another Member State’s offshore installation to a Finnish offshore installation are declared.
Upon dispatch, goods delivered from a Finnish offshore installation to another Member State or from Finland to another Member State’s offshore installation or from a Finnish offshore installation to another Member State’s offshore installation are declared.
When goods are delivered to offshore installations, a simplified procedure is applied. Three commodity codes are used in the declarations:
- 99312400 (goods belonging to CN groups 1-24)
- 99312700 (goods belonging to CN group 27)
- 99319900 (other goods)
Declaring the net mass is compulsory only for the commodity code 99312700. As the country code, either the actual country code or the code QV is used.
The above-mentioned simplified procedure is not applied to goods delivered from offshore installations. Instead, all data are declared in accordance with the general instructions for compiling statistics.
