Appendix C1

SINGLE ADMINISTRATIVE DOCUMENT EXPLANATORY NOTES

TITLE I

GENERAL REMARKS

(1) The Customs administration of each Member State may, if necessary, supplement the explanatory note.

(2) The provisions of this title shall not preclude printing of paper-based customs declarations and documents certifying the customs status of Union goods not being moved under internal Union transit procedure by means of data-processing systems, on plain paper, on conditions laid down by the Member States.

A.   GENERAL DESCRIPTION

(1) The paper-based customs declaration shall be printed on self-copying paper dressed for writing purposes and weighing at least 40 g/m2. The paper must be sufficiently opaque for the information on one side not to affect the legibility of the information on the other side and its strength should be such that in normal use it does not easily tear or crease.

(2) The paper shall be white for all copies. However, on the copies used for Union transit (1, 4 and 5), boxes 1 (first and third subdivisions), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 15, 17, 18, 19, 21, 25, 27, 31, 32, 33 (first subdivision on the left), 35, 38, 40, 44, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55 and 56 shall have a green background.

The forms shall be printed in green ink.

(3) The boxes are based on a unit of measurement of one tenth of an inch horizontally and one sixth of an inch vertically. The subdivisions are based on a unit of measurement of one-tenth of an inch horizontally.

(4) A colour marking of the different copies shall be effected in the following manner on forms conforming to the specimens shown in appendices B1 and B3:

 copies 1, 2, 3 and 5 shall have at the right hand edge a continuous margin, coloured respectively red, green, yellow and blue,

 copies 4, 6, 7 and 8 shall have at the right hand edge a broken margin coloured respectively blue, red, green and yellow;

On forms conforming to the specimens shown in appendices B2 and B4, copies 1/6, 2/7, 3/8 and 4/5 shall have at the right hand edge a continuous margin, and to the right of this a broken margin coloured respectively red, green, yellow and blue.

The width of these margins shall be approximately 3 mm. The broken margins shall comprise a series of squares with a side measurement of 3 mm each one separated by 3 mm.

The copies on which the data contained in the forms shown in appendices B1 and B3 must appear by a self-copying process are shown in Appendix B5.The copies on which the data contained in the forms shown in appendices B2 and B4 must appear by a self-copying process are shown in Appendix B6.

(5) The forms shall measure 210 × 297 mm with a maximum tolerance as to length of 5 mm less and 8 mm more.

(6) The customs administrations of the Member States may require that the forms show the name and address of the printer or a mark enabling the printer to be identified. They may also make the printing of the forms conditional on prior technical approval.

(7) The forms and continuation forms are to be used:

(a) where Union legislation refers to a declaration for placing goods under a customs procedure or for re-exportation;

(b) as necessary during the transitional period provided for in an act of accession to the Union, in trade between the Union as constituted prior to that accession and the new Member States, and between the latter, in respect of goods for which customs duties and charges having equivalent effect have not yet been fully eliminated or which remain subject to other measures provided for in the act of accession;

(c) where Union rules specifically provide for their use, in particular within the framework of the Union transit procedure for the transit declaration for travellers and for the fallback procedure.

(8) The forms and continuation forms used for this purpose comprise the copies needed to complete the formalities relating to one or more customs procedures, taken from a set of eight copies:

 copy 1 is kept by the authorities of the Member State in which export (dispatch) or Union transit formalities are completed,

 copy 2 is used for statistical purposes by the Member State of export. This copy can be used as well for statistical purposes by the Member State of dispatch in cases of trade between parts of the customs territory of the Union with a different fiscal regime,

 copy 3 is returned to the exporter after being stamped by the customs authority,

 copy 4 is kept by the office of destination upon completion of the Union transit operation or as the document providing evidence of the customs status of Union goods,

 copy 5 is the return copy for the Union transit procedure,

 copy 6 is kept by the authorities of the Member State in which import formalities are completed,

 copy 7 is used for statistical purposes by the Member State of import. This copy can be used as well for statistical purposes by the Member State of import in cases of trade between parts of the customs territory of the Union with a different fiscal regime,

 copy 8 is returned to the consignee.

Various combinations are therefore possible, such as:

 export, outward processing or re-export: copies 1, 2 and 3,

 Union transit: copies 1, 4 and 5,

 customs procedures at import: copies 6, 7 and 8.

(9) In addition, there are circumstances in which the customs status of Union goods in question has to be proved at destination. In such cases copy 4 should be used as a T2L document.

(10) Operators may, if they wish, use privately printed subsets combining the appropriate copies, provided that they conform to the official specimen.

Each subset must be designed in such a way that where boxes must contain identical information in the two Member States involved, such information can be entered directly by the exporter or the holder of the procedure on copy 1 and will then appear, by means of chemical treatment of the paper, on all the copies. Where, however, for any reason (in particular where the content of the information differs according to the stage of the operation involved) the information is not to be transmitted from one Member State to another, the desensitisation of the self-copying paper must confine reproduction to the copies concerned.

Where declarations are to be processed by computer, use may be made of subsets taken from sets in which each copy has a dual function: 1/6, 2/7, 3/8, 4/5.

In this case, in each subset, the numbers of the copies being used must be shown by striking through the numbers, in the margin of the form, referring to the copies not being used.

Every such subset must be designed so that the particulars which have to appear on each copy will be reproduced by means of chemical treatment of the paper.

(11) When pursuant to general remark 2 declarations for placing goods under a customs procedure, for re-export, or documents certifying the customs status of Union goods not being moved under the internal Union transit procedure are drawn up on plain paper by means of official or private-sector data-processing systems, the format of the said declarations or documents must comply with all the conditions laid down by the Code or this Regulation, including those relating to the back of the form (in respect of copies used under the Union transit procedure), except:

 the colour used for printing,

 the use of italic characters,

 the printing of a background for the Union transit boxes.

Where a transit declaration is processed at an office of departure by a computerised system, one copy of the declaration must be lodged at that office.

B.   PARTICULARS REQUIRED

The forms contain a number of boxes only some of which will be used, depending on the customs procedure(s) in question.

Without prejudice to the application of simplified procedures, the boxes which may be completed for each procedure are set out in the following table. The specific provisions concerning each box as they are described in Title II apply without prejudice to the status of the boxes as defined in the table.

Note that the status listed below have no bearing on the fact that certain particulars are collected only where circumstances warrant it. For example, the supplementary units in box 41 (status ‘A’) will only be collected where required by the TARIC.

C.   INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF THE FORM

Whenever a particular subset contains one or more copies which may be used in a Member State other than the one in which it was first completed, the forms must be completed by typewriter or by a mechanographical or similar process. For ease of completion by typewriter the form should be inserted in the machine in such a way that the first letter of the particulars to be entered in box 2 is placed in the position box in the top left-hand corner.

Where all the copies of a subset are intended for use in the same Member State, they may be filled in legibly by hand, in ink and in block capitals, provided that this is allowed in that Member State. The same applies to the particulars to be given on the copies used for the purposes of the Union transit procedure.

The form must contain no erasures or overwriting. Any alterations must be made by crossing out the incorrect particulars and adding those required. Any alterations made in this way must be initialled by the person making them and expressly endorsed by the competent authorities. The latter may, where necessary, require a new declaration to be lodged.

In addition, the forms may be completed using an automatic reproduction process instead of any of the procedures mentioned above. They may also be produced and completed by this means on condition that the provisions concerning the specimen forms, format, language used, legibility, absence of erasures and overwriting, and amendments are strictly observed.

Only numbered boxes are to be completed, as appropriate, by operators. The other boxes, identified by a capital letter, are for administrative use.

Without prejudice to general remark 2, the copies which are to remain at the office of export/dispatch or departure must bear the original signature of the persons concerned.

The lodging with a customs office of a declaration signed by the declarant or his representative shall indicate that the person concerned is declaring the goods in question for the procedure applied for and, without prejudice to the possible application of sanctions, shall be held responsible, in accordance with the provisions in force in the Member States, in respect of:

 the accuracy of the information given in the declaration,

 the authenticity of the documents attached,

 the observance of all the obligations inherent in the placement of the goods in question under the procedure concerned.

The signature of the holder of the procedure or, where applicable, his authorised representative commits him in respect of all particulars relating to the Union transit operation pursuant to the provisions on Union transit laid down in the Code and in this Regulation and as listed in section B above.

As regards Union transit formalities and formalities at destination, it is in the interests of each person intervening in the operation to check the contents of his declaration before signing it and lodging it with the customs office. In particular, any discrepancy found by the person concerned between the goods which he is to declare and any particulars already entered on the forms being used must immediately be reported by that person to the customs authority. In such cases the declaration must then be made out on fresh forms.

Unless Title III provides otherwise, a box that is not to be used should be left completely blank.

TITLE III

REMARKS CONCERNING THE CONTINUATION FORMS

(a) Continuation forms should only be used where the declaration covers more than one item (cf. box 5). They must be presented together with an IM, EX, EU or CO form.

(b) The instructions in Titles I and II also apply to the continuation forms.

However:

 the symbols ‘IM/c’, ‘EX/c’ or ‘EU/c’ (or ‘CO/c’ where applicable) must be entered in the first subdivision of box 1, that subdivision being left blank only where:

 the form is used for Union transit only, in which case, depending on the Union transit procedure applicable to the goods concerned, ‘T1bis’, ‘T2bis’, ‘T2Fbis’ or ‘T2SMbis’ will be entered in the third subdivision of box 1,

 the form is used solely to furnish proof of the customs status of Union goods, in which case, depending on the status of the goods concerned, ‘T2Lbis’, ‘T2LFbis’ or ‘T2LSMbis’ will be entered in the third subdivision of the box,

 box 2/8 is for optional use by the Member States and should show only the name and identification number, if any, of the person concerned,

 the ‘summary’ part of box 47 concerns the final summary of all the items covered by the IM and IM/c, ex and EX/c, EU and EU/c or CO and CO/c forms used. It should therefore be used only on the last of the IM/c, EX/c, EU/c or CO/c forms attached to an IM, EX, EU or CO document in order to show the total payable by type of tax.

(c) If continuation forms are used,

 any boxes 31 (Packages and description of goods) which have not been used must be struck out to prevent later use,

 when the third subdivision of box 1 contains the symbol T, boxes 32 (Item number), 33 (Commodity code), 35 (Gross mass (kg)), 38 (Net mass (kg)), 40 (Summary declaration/previous document) and 44 (Additional information, documents produced, certificates and authorisations) of the first item of goods of the transit declaration used must be struck through and the first box 31 (Packages and description of goods) of this document may not be used to enter the marks, numbers, number and kind of packages or goods description. In the first box 31 of this document, reference will be made, as appropriate, to the number of continuation forms bearing the respective symbols T1bis, T2bis or T2Fbis.




Appendix C2

EXPLANATORY NOTE ON THE USE OF TRANSIT DECLARATIONS BY THE EXCHANGE OF EDI STANDARD MESSAGES

(EDI TRANSIT DECLARATION)

TITLE I

GENERAL

The EDI transit declaration is based upon the particulars entered into the different boxes of the Single Administrative Document (SAD) as defined in appendices C1 and D1, in association with or replaced by a code if appropriate.

This Appendix contains exclusively the basic special requirements, which apply when the formalities are carried out by the exchange of the EDI standard messages. Furthermore the additional codes presented in Appendix D2 are applicable. Appendices C1 and D1) apply to the EDI transit declaration unless otherwise specified in this Appendix or in Appendix D2.

The detailed structure and content of the EDI transit declaration follow the technical specifications the competent authorities communicate to the holder of the procedure in order to ensure the proper functioning of the system. These specifications are based upon the requirements laid down in this Appendix.

This Appendix describes the structure of the information exchange. The transit declaration is organised into data groups, which contain data attributes. The attributes are grouped together in such a way that they build up coherent logical blocks within the scope of the message. A data group indentation indicates that the data group depends on a lower indent data group.

When present, the appropriate number of the box on the SAD is noted.

The term ‘number’ in the explanation of a data group indicates how many times the data group may be used in the transit declaration.

The term ‘type/length’ in the explanation of an attribute indicates the requirements for the data type and the data length. The codes for the data types are as follows:

a

alphabetic

n

numeric

an

alphanumeric

The number following the code indicates the admissible data length. The following applies.

The optional two dots before the length indicator mean that the data has no fixed length, but it can have up to a number of digits, as specified by the length indicator. A comma in the data length means that the attribute can hold decimals, the digit before the comma indicates the total length of the attribute, the digit after the comma indicates the maximum number of digits after the decimal point.

Box 37: Procedure

A.    First subdivision

The codes to be entered in this subdivision are four-digit codes, composed of a two-digit code representing the procedure requested, followed by a second two-digit code representing the previous procedure. The list of two-digit codes is given below.

‘Previous procedure’ means the procedure under which the goods were placed before being placed under the procedure requested.

It should be noted that where the previous procedure is a warehousing procedure or temporary admission, or where the goods have come from a free zone, the relevant code should be used only where the goods have not been placed under a special procedure (inward processing, outward processing).

For example: re-export of goods imported under the customs inward processing procedure and subsequently placed under the customs warehousing procedure = 3151 (not 3171). (First operation = 5100; second operation = 7151: re-export = 3151).

Similarly, where goods previously temporarily exported are re-imported, placing under one of the abovementioned suspensive procedures is to be regarded as simple importation under that procedure. Indication of the ‘re-importation’ aspect is to be given only when the goods are released for free circulation.

For example: entry for home use with simultaneous entry for free circulation of goods exported under the customs outward processing procedure and placed under a customs warehousing procedure on re-importation = 6121 (not 6171). (First operation: temporary export for outward processing = 2100; second operation: storage in customs warehouse = 7121; third operation: entry for home use + entry for free circulation = 6121).

The codes marked in the list below with the letter (a) cannot be used as the first two digits of the procedure code, but only to indicate the previous procedure.

For example: 4054 = entry for free circulation and home use of goods previously placed under the inward processing in another Member State.

List of procedures for coding purposes

Two of these basic elements must be combined to produce a four-digit code.

00.

This code is used to indicate that there is no previous procedure (a)

01.

Free circulation of goods simultaneously redispatched in the context of trade between parts of the customs territory of the Union in which the provisions of Directive 2006/112/EC are applicable and parts of that territory in which these provisions do not apply, or in the context of trade between the parts of that territory where these provisions do not apply.

Free circulation of goods simultaneously redispatched in the context of trade between the Union and the countries with which it has formed a customs union.

Example: Goods arriving from a third country, released for free circulation in France and sent on to the Channel Islands.

02.

Free circulation of goods with a view to applying the inward processing procedure (drawback system). (a)

Explanation: Inward processing (drawback system) in accordance with Article 256 of the Code.

07.

Free circulation with simultaneous placing of goods under a warehousing procedure other than a customs warehousing procedure.

Explanation: This code is to be used where the goods are released for free circulation but where VAT and possibly excise duties have not been paid.

Examples: Imported machines are released for free circulation but VAT has not been paid. While the goods are placed in a tax warehouse or approved area, payment of the VAT is suspended.

Imported cigarettes are released for free circulation but VAT and excise duties have not been paid. While the goods are stored in a tax warehouse or approved area, payment of the VAT and excise duties is suspended.

10.

Permanent export.

Example: Normal export of Union goods to a third country, but also export of Union goods to parts of the customs territory of the Union to which the provisions of Council Directive 2006/112/EC do not apply (OJ L 347, 11.12.2006, p. 1).

11.

Export of compensating products obtained from equivalent goods under the inward processing procedure before entering import goods for the procedure.

Explanation: Prior export (EX-IM) in accordance with Article 223(2)(c) of the Code.

Example: Export of cigarettes manufactured from Union tobacco leaves before placing of tobacco leaves from a third country under the inward processing procedure.

21.

Temporary export under the outward processing procedure.

Example: Explanation: Outward processing procedure under Article 259 to 262 of the Code. See also code 22.

22.

Example: The simultaneous application to textile products of the outward processing procedure and the economic outward processing procedure (Council Regulation (EC) No 3036/94).

23.

Temporary export for return in the unaltered state.

Example: Temporary export for exhibitions of articles such as samples, professional equipment, etc.

31.

Re-export.

Explanation: Re-export of non-Union goods following a suspensive arrangement.

Example: Goods are placed under a customs warehousing procedure and subsequently declared for re-export.

Example: Goods coming from a third country with payment of the customs duties and VAT.

41.

Simultaneous release for free circulation and home use of goods placed under the inward processing procedure (drawback system). (a)

Example: Inward processing procedure with payment of customs duties and national taxes on import.

42.

Simultaneous release for free circulation and home use of goods which are the subject of a VAT-exempt supply to another Member State and, when applicable, an excise duty suspension.

Explanation: Exemption from payment of VAT and, where applicable, the excise duty suspension, is granted because the import is followed by an intra-Union supply or transfer of the goods to another Member State. In that case, the VAT and, where applicable, the excise duty will be due in the Member State of final destination. In order to use this procedure, the persons must meet the conditions listed in Article 143(2) of Directive 2006/112/EC and, where applicable, the conditions listed in Article 17(1)(b) of Directive 2008/118/EC.

Example 1: Import of goods with exemption from VAT through a tax representative.

Example 2: Excise goods imported from a third country, which are released for free circulation and are the subject of a VAT-exempt supply to another Member State. The release for free circulation is immediately followed by a movement under excise duty suspension from the place of importation initiated by a registered consignor in accordance with Article 17(1)(b) of Directive 2008/118/EC.

43.

Simultaneous release for free circulation and home use of goods subject to specific measures connected with the collection of an amount during the transitional period following the accession of new Member States.

Example: Release for free circulation of agricultural products subject, during a special transitional period following the accession of new Member States, to a special customs procedure or special measures between the new Member States and the rest of the Union of the kind applied in their time to ES and PT.

45.

Release of goods for free circulation and home use for either VAT or excise duties and their placing under the tax warehouse procedure.

61.

Re-importation with simultaneous release for free circulation and home use of goods which are not the subject of a VAT-exempt supply.

63.

Reimportation with simultaneous release for free circulation and home use of goods which are the subject of a VAT-exempt supply to another Member State and, when applicable, an excise duty suspension.

Explanation: Exemption from payment of VAT and, where applicable, the excise duty suspension, is granted because the reimportation is followed by an intra-Union supply or transfer of the goods to another Member State. In such a case, the VAT and, where applicable, the excise duty, will be due in the Member State of final destination.

2. Codes exclusively for national use must be composed of a numeric character followed by two alphanumeric characters according to that Member State's own nomenclature.

Box 40: Summary declaration/Previous document

This box is for alphanumeric (an..26) codes.

Each code has three components, which are separated by dashes (-). The first component (a1) consists of three different letters and is used to distinguish between the three categories mentioned below. The second component (an..3), which consists of a combination of digits and/or letters, serves to identify the type of document. The third component (an..20) represents the particulars needed to recognise the document, either its identification number or another recognisable reference.

1.    The first component (a1):

the summary declaration, represented by ‘X’,

the initial declaration, represented by ‘Y’

the previous document, represented by ‘Z’,

2.    The second component (an..3):

Choose the abbreviation for the document from the ‘list of abbreviations for documents’.

This list includes the code ‘CLE’, which stands for ‘date and reference of the entry of the goods in the records’. (Article 182 of the Code). The date is coded as follows: yyyymmdd.

3.    The third component (an..20):

The identification number or another recognisable reference of the document is inserted here.

Examples:

 The previous document is a T1 transit document to which the office of destination has assigned the number ‘238544’. The code will therefore be ‘Z-821-238544’. (‘Z’ for previous document, ‘821’ for the transit procedure and ‘238544’ for the document's registration number (or the MRN for the NCTS operations)).

 A cargo manifest bearing the number ‘2222’ is used as a summary declaration. The code will be ‘X-785-2222’. (‘X’ for the summary declaration, ‘785’ for the cargo manifest and ‘2222’ for the manifest's identification number).

 Goods were entered in the records on 14 February 2002. The code will therefore be ‘Y-CLE-20020214-5’ (‘Y’ to show there was an initial declaration, ‘CLE’ for ‘entry in the records’, ‘20020214’ for the date of entry, ‘2002’ being the year, ‘02’ the month, ‘14’ the day and ‘5’ for the reference of the entry in the records).

Union law provides for certain additional information to be entered in boxes other than box 44. However, such additional information should be coded according to the same rules as the information to be specifically entered in box 44. Furthermore, where Union law fails to specify the box in which information is to be entered, that information is to be entered in box 44.

All types of additional information are listed at the end of this title.

Field 3 has to be filled in with an identifier for the transit transaction. The way that field is used is under the responsibility of National Administrations but each transit transaction handled during one year within the given country must have a unique number.

National Administrations that want to have the office reference number of the customs authorities included in the MRN, could use up to the first 6 characters to insert the national number of the office.

Field 4 has to be filled with a value that is a check digit for the whole MRN. This field allows for the detection of an error when capturing the whole MRN.

The ‘MRN’ shall also be printed in bar code mode using the standard ‘code 128’, character set ‘B’.

The transit accompanying document shall not be modified nor shall any addition or deletion be made thereto unless otherwise specified in this Regulation.

6. Formalities en route

Between the time when the goods leave the office of departure and the time they arrive at the office of destination, certain details may have to be added on the transit accompanying document accompanying the goods. The details relate to the transport operation and must be entered by the carrier responsible for the means of transport on which the goods are loaded as and when the corresponding activities are carried out. The particulars may be added legibly by hand, in which case the entries should be made in ink and in block letters.

Carriers are reminded that goods can be transhipped only under an authorisation of the customs authorities of the country in whose territory the transhipment is to be made.

Where those authorities consider that the Union transit operation concerned may continue in the normal way they shall, once they have taken any steps that may be necessary, endorse the transit accompanying documents.

The customs authorities at the office of transit or office of destination, as the case may be, have the obligation to incorporate into the system the added data on the transit accompanying document. The data can also be incorporated by the authorised consignee.

The boxes and activities involved are:

 Transhipment: use box 55.

 Box 55: Transhipment

 The carrier must complete the first three lines of this box when goods are transhipped from one means of transport to another or from one container to another in the course of the operation in question.

 However, where goods are carried in containers that are to be transported by road vehicles, customs authorities may authorise the holder of the procedure to leave box 18 blank where the logistical pattern at the point of departure may prevent the identity and nationality of the means of transport from being provided at the time of establishment of the transit declaration, and where they can ensure that the proper information concerning the means of transport shall be subsequently entered in box 55.

 Other incidents: use box 56.

 Box 56: Other incidents during carriage

 Box to be completed in accordance with current obligations regarding transit.

 In addition, where goods have been loaded on a semi-trailer and the tractor is changed during the journey (without the goods being handled or transhipped), enter in this box the registration number and nationality of the new tractor. In this case, endorsement by the competent authorities is not necessary.
