As of exit day (31 January 2020) the UK is no longer an EU Member State. However, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law. This has an impact on this Practice Note. For further guidance, see Practice Note: Brexit—IP rights.
This Practice Note considers Regulation (EU) 608/2013 (the Customs Regulation). The Customs Regulation came into force on 1 January 2014 and replaced Regulation (EC) 1383/2003, in response to calls from stakeholders for the system to be revised. This Practice Note: .
examines the requirements of the Customs Regulation
considers how the regime has changed from the previous EU customs system, and
provides practical guidance on formulating a border detention strategy and completing the 'application for action' (AFA)
The Customs Regulation extends and develops many of the features of its predecessor, Regulation (EC) 1383/2003. Many of the basic principles however remain the same.
