A new instruction on the procedure for completing a customs declaration for goods came into force on 1 July 2012 (the “Instruction”). The Instruction applies to goods imported to and exported from the unified territory of the Customs Union.

The latest Instruction contains more than 120 new provisions aimed at correcting the technical errors in the previous one, and it also makes the declaration simpler and clearer to complete. As a result, the ambiguous interpretations of certain provisions of a customs declaration have been eliminated.
