The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on statistics relating to the trading of goods with non-member countries,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Data exchange modalities between customs authorities and national statistical authorities

1.   National customs authorities shall provide their national statistical authorities without delay and at the latest during the month following the month the customs declarations were accepted or were subject to decisions by customs pertaining to them, with the records on imports and exports from customs declarations lodged with them.

2.   With effect from the date of implementation of the mechanism for mutual data exchange by electronic means pursuant to Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 471/2009, customs authorities shall provide daily copies of the data from customs declarations lodged with them to the customs authority of the Member State indicated on the record as:

(a)

the Member State of destination, on import;

(b)

the Member State of actual export, on export.

The customs authority in the Member State of destination, on import, and the Member State of actual export, on export, shall forward the import and export records from these customs declarations without delay, and at the latest during the month following the month the customs declarations were accepted or were subject to decisions by customs pertaining to them, to their national statistical authorities.

3.   The customs authorities shall provide the national statistical authorities with revised records on imports and exports where statistical data already provided are amended or changed.

4.   The customs authorities shall verify, at the request of the national statistical authorities, the correctness and completeness of the records on imports and exports provided by them.

4.   Member States may compile less detailed information than specified in Article 6(1) of Regulation (EC) No 471/2009 for individual transactions below the statistical value threshold. However, as a minimum, data on the total monthly statistical value of both imports and exports shall be transmitted to the Commission (Eurostat).

5.   The statistics shall contain data affected by confidentiality provisions in the compiling Member State. National statistical authorities shall flag the data to be considered as confidential in such a way that as much information as possible can be disseminated, at least at chapter level of the Combined Nomenclature, provided confidentiality is thereby ensured.

Article 3
