Future customs procedures

Centralised customs clearance (import)

The centralised customs clearance (import) will go live on 2 June 2025.

Centralised clearance (import) means that a company authorised for centralised clearance (import) (CCL) can send its export customs declarations to a single Member State, regardless of where in the EU the goods are physically located when they are declared for import.

In order to apply for an authorisation for centralised clearance (CCL), the applicant must first hold an Authorised Economic Operator for Customs Simplifications (AEOC) authorisation. The authorisation for centralised clearance (import) must requested in the country where the applicant is established. The authorisation shows, for example, the Member States, procedures, declaration types, goods and locations for which it is valid.

Customs declarations should be sent to the supervising customs office, which is located in the country where you are established and have been granted your authorisation. The customs office responsible for the place where the goods are physically located when they are declared for the customs procedure is called the customs office of entry. The two customs offices co-operate and exchange messages about the declaration and any controls digitally in real time. This is to determine whether the goods can be released or not.

Centralised customs clearance for imports will be introduced in two phases. The first release includes standard customs declarations.
