In the region of the Blagoveshchensk customs, one hundred percent of the goods imported by water transport are processed using a preliminary information technology, the press service of the Far Eastern Customs Administration reports.
From July 1, compulsory preliminary information on goods imported into the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union by water transport is introduced.
According to Andrei Ivanischev, head of the customs procedures and customs control department of the Blagoveshchensk customs, last year, 504 river vessels were registered at the Blagoveshchensk-Heihe border crossing point: 175 domestic ships and 329 foreign ships. In 2017, using this technology, 446 river vessels were registered: 166 Russian and 280 vessels from China.
At customs in Blagoveshchensk, the technology of preliminary informing on water transport has been implemented since 2017 in respect of goods imported through the checkpoint of Blagoveshchensk-Heihe in the region of the Blagoveshchensk customs post.
Preliminary informing is aimed at reducing the time of customs operations and improving the efficiency of customs control. This allows you to save time and financial costs for participants of foreign economic activity.
From July 1, customs carriers must necessarily submit to the customs authority in electronic form information about imported goods before they arrive at the territory of the EAEU using the software “Portal Sea Port”. Today, carriers submit preliminary information at will.
The procedure for submitting preliminary information was established by the decision of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission of April 10, 2018.
Failure to submit or late submission of information entails the responsibility established by article 19.7 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation.
