COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2016/578

of 11 April 2016

establishing the Work Programme relating to the development and deployment of the electronic systems provided for in the Union Customs Code

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 laying down the Union Customs Code (1), and in particular Article 281 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 280 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 laying down the Union Customs Code (hereinafter ‘Code’) provides that the Commission is to draw up a work programme relating to the development and deployment of the electronic systems (hereafter ‘Work Programme’). The first Work Programme was adopted by Commission Implementing Decision 2014/255/EU (2). It is necessary to update that programme. Given the number of changes that are necessary to Implementing Decision 2014/255/EU and for reasons of clarity it is appropriate to replace and repeal that Decision.

(2)

The Work Programme is in particular important for the establishment of the transitional measures related to the electronic systems and the time limit for the deployment of the systems that are not yet operational by the date of application of the Code — 1 May 2016. Therefore, the Work Programme is necessary to establish the transitional periods related to the electronic systems laid down in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446 (3), Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341 (4) and the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447 (5).

(3)

The Code provides that all exchange of information between customs authorities and between economic operators and customs authorities and storage of such information is to be made using electronic data processing techniques and that information and communication systems are to offer the same facilities to economic operators in all Member States. The Work Programme should therefore set out an extensive plan for the implementation of electronic systems in order to ensure the correct application of the Code.

(4)

Accordingly, the Work Programme should contain a list of the electronic systems which should be prepared and developed by the Member States (‘national systems’) or by the Member States in cooperation with the Commission (‘trans-European systems’) in order for the Code to become applicable in practice. That list should be based on the existing planning document related to all IT related customs projects, called the multi-annual strategic plan (‘MASP’), which is drawn up in accordance with Decision No 70/2008/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) and in particular Article 4 and Article 8(2) thereof. The electronic systems referred to in the Work Programme should be subject to the same project management approach and prepared and developed as established in the MASP.

(5)

The Work Programme should identify the electronic systems as well as the related legal basis, the key milestones and the envisaged dates for starting operations. The dates referred to as ‘start dates of deployment’ should be the earliest dates as of which Member States are able to start operating the new electronic system. In addition, the Work Programme should define ‘end dates of deployment’ as the latest dates by which all Member States and all economic operators start using the new or upgraded electronic system as required under the Code. These time windows are necessary for the implementation of the deployment of the system at Union level. The duration of the time windows should take into account the deployment needs of each system.

(6)

The time limits for the deployment of trans-European systems should be established either by means of specific dates or, where necessary, by means of time windows. Those time windows should be limited to what is necessary for the migration of the current system used by Member States and economic operators to the new system. The Member States should be allowed to decide within those time windows when to start and end the migration of their own systems and for the economic operators to use and to connect to the new systems. The end date laid down by each Member State should constitute the end date of the validity of the period related to the transitional rules for the relevant electronic systems laid down in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447.

(7)

The time limits for the deployment and migration of national systems should be set in accordance with the national project and migration plans of Member States given that those systems belong to specific national IT environments and circumstances. The end date laid down by each Member State should constitute the end date of the transitional period related to the relevant electronic systems laid down in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341 and the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447. For reasons of transparency, and pursuant to Article 56(2) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341, Member States should submit their national planning to the Commission and the Commission should publish that planning on the Europa website. In addition, the Member States should ensure, in a timely manner, the transmission to the economic operators of the technical information necessary to enable the economic operators to update where necessary their own systems and connect to the new or upgraded systems and apply the new rules and data requirements, whilst applying the recommendations provided by Member States in their national guides of good IT practices.

(8)

The electronic systems referred to in the Work Programme should be selected in view of their expected impact in terms of the priorities defined in the Code. One of the main priorities in this regard is to be able to offer economic operators a wide range of electronic customs services throughout the customs territory of the Union. Furthermore, the electronic systems should aim at enhancing the efficiency, effectiveness and harmonisation of customs processes across the Union. The order of and the timetable for the deployment of the systems included in the Work Programme should be based on practical and project management considerations such as the spreading of efforts and resources, the interconnection between the projects, the specific prerequisites of each system and the project maturity. The Work Programme should organise the development of the electronic systems in different stages. In view of the substantial number of systems and interfaces to be developed, deployed and maintained and the high costs involved to fully implement the Work Programme by the year 2020, a close follow up and monitoring should be ensured.

(9)

As the electronic systems referred to in Article 16(1) of the Code are to be developed, deployed and maintained by the Member States, in cooperation with the Commission, the Commission and the Member States should work together to ensure that the preparation and implementation of the electronic systems are managed in line with the Work Programme and that appropriate measures are taken to plan, design, develop and deploy the systems identified in a coordinated and timely manner.

(10)

In order to ensure synchronicity between the Work Programme and the MASP, the Work Programme should be updated at the same time as MASP and should be aligned with MASP. In establishing future updates of the Work Programme it will be necessary to pay particular attention to progress achieved annually in meeting the agreed targets set, given the ambitious and challenging nature of the electronic systems to be finalised in the years 2019 and 2020 as well as the currently planned concentration of work in the years 2019 and 2020.

(11)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee,

ANNEX

The work programme relating to the development and deployment of the electronic systems provided for in the Union Customs Code

I.   INTRODUCTION TO THE WORK PROGRAMME

1.

The Work Programme provides an instrument to support the application of the Code relating to the development and deployment of the electronic systems envisaged therein.

2.

The purpose of the Work Programme is also to specify periods during which the transitional measures are applicable until the deployment of the new or upgraded electronic systems as referred to in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447.

3.

The ‘key milestone’ in terms of target date of the technical specifications, shall be understood as the date by which a stable version of the technical specifications is made available. For the national systems or components, this date will be communicated as part of the published national project planning.

4.

The Work Programme establishes the following ‘dates of the deployment’ of the trans-European and national systems:

(a)

the start date of the deployment window for the electronic systems, to be understood as the earliest date to start operations of the electronic system;

(b)

the end date of the deployment window for the electronic systems, to be understood as

the latest date by which the systems need to be operated by all Member States and used by all economic operators, and as well as

the end date of the validity of the transitional period.

For the purposes of point (b), the date will be the same as the start date in case no actual (deployment or migration) time-window is envisaged.

5.

For purely national systems or specific national components of a wider Union project, the Member States may decide on the ‘dates of deployment’ as well as on the start date and on the end date of a deployment window in accordance with their national project planning.

The following national systems or specific national components are covered by the first paragraph:

(a)

UCC AES Component 2 (National Export Systems upgrade) (point 10 of Part II);

(b)

UCC Special Procedures (SP IMP/SP EXP) (point 12 of Part II);

(c)

UCC Arrival Notification, Presentation Notification, Temporary Storage (point 13 of Part II);

(d)

UCC National Import Systems upgrade (point 14 of Part II);

(e)

UCC Guarantee Management (GUM) — Component 2 (point 16 of Part II).

6.

For trans-European systems with an actual deployment window without a single implementation date, the Member States may start the deployment at an appropriate date within this window and may allow a time-period for the economic operators to migrate within this deployment window, where such time-period is deemed appropriate. The start and end dates shall be communicated to the Commission. Careful examination of the common domain aspects will need to be considered.

The following trans-European systems are covered by the first paragraph:

(a)

UCC Proof of Union Status (PoUS) (point 8 of Part II);

(b)

UCC NCTS upgrade (point 9 of Part II);

(c)

UCC AES (Component 1) (point 10 of Part II).

7.

In view of the implementation of the Work Programme, the Commission and the Member States will need to manage carefully the complexity in terms of dependencies, variables and assumptions. The principles set out in the MASP will be used to manage the planning.

The projects will be rolled out in different phases from elaboration to construction, testing and migration to final operation. The role of the Commission and the Member States in these different phases will depend on the nature and architecture of the systems and its components or services, as described in the detailed project fiches of the MASP. Where appropriate, common technical specifications will be defined by the Commission, in close cooperation with and subject to review with the Member States, with a view to provide them 24 months prior to the target date of deployment of the electronic system. Technical specifications drawn up nationally for the national systems or components need to be made available, at least concerning the parts related to the external communication with the economic operators, in a timely manner in order to enable the economic operators to plan and adjust their systems and interfaces accordingly.

The Member States and, where appropriate, the Commission will engage in the development and deployment of the systems in line with the defined system architecture and specifications. The activities will be carried out in respect of the milestones and dates stated in the Work Programme. The Commission and the Member States will also collaborate with the economic operators and other stakeholders.

The economic operators will have to take the necessary steps to be able to make use of the systems once in place and at the latest by the end dates defined in this Work Programme or, where applicable, defined by the Member States as part of their national plan.

This project aims to implement the UCC requirements for export and exit.

 

Component 1 — ‘Trans-European AES’: The aim of the project is to further develop the existing trans-European Export Control System in order to implement a full AES that would cover the business requirements for processes and data brought about by the UCC, inter alia the coverage of simplified procedures, split exit consignments and centralised clearance for export. It is also envisaged to cover the development of harmonised interfaces with Excise Movement System (EMCS) and NCTS. As such, AES will enable the full automation of export procedures and exit formalities. AES covers parts to be developed centrally and nationally.

 

Component 2 — ‘National Export Systems upgrade’: In addition, not being part of the scope of AES but closely linked, separate national systems are to be upgraded for specific national elements related to export and/or exit formalities. As far as these elements do not have an impact on the common domain for AES, they can be covered under this component.

Component 1 — ‘GUM’: The trans-European system will cover the management of the comprehensive guarantees that may be used in more than one Member State and the monitoring of the reference amount for each customs declaration, supplementary declaration or an appropriate information of the particulars needed for the entry in the accounts for the existing customs debts for all customs procedures as provided for in the Union Customs Code, except Transit which is handled as part of the NCTS project.

 

Component 2 — ‘National Guarantee Management’: In addition, the electronic systems existing at national level to manage the guarantees valid in one Member State are to be upgraded.

17.   UCC Import Control System upgrade (ICS 2)

The goal of this project is to strengthen the safety and security of the supply chain for all modes of transport and especially air cargo, by means of improving data quality, data filing, data availability and data sharing as regards the entry summary declaration and related risk and control information (ENS+ lifecycle).

The project will also facilitate the collaboration amongst Member States in the process of risk analysis. It will lead to a complete new architecture of the existing trans-European ICS system.
