COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 3665/93

of 21 December 1993

amending Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 laying down provisions for the implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 establishing the Community customs code

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 of 12 October 1992 establishing the Community customs code (1), and in particular Article 249 thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 (2) lays down certain provisions for the implementation of Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92;

Whereas amendments have been concerning certain subheadings of CN codes 0408, 2208 and 2710 and the designation of certain certificate issuing authorities;

Whereas it is opportune to align the maximum amounts permitted in respect of consignments which give rise to the establishment of Forms APR or EUR 2 used in relations with the Republics of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia and the territory of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, as well as the Occupied Territories;

Whereas the implementation of the Cooperation Agreement between the EC and the Republic of Slovenia requires the amendment of Articles 120 to 140 of Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93;

Whereas Articles 222, 223 and 224 of Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 contain provisions on customs declarations using data-processing techniques; whereas it has become necessary to make those provisions more explicit; whereas it is appropriate to lay down that all other customs formalities may also be carried out using data-processing techniques; whereas these special rules must nevertheless be reserved for cases where only the formalities carried out by data-processing techniques have the desired legal effects;

Whereas goods placed inter alia in a free zone or free warehouse, in temporary storage or under suspensive arrangements may be declared in error for a customs procedure involving the obligation to pay import duties, instead of other goods; whereas it is appropriate to provide that the declaration for that procedure should be invalidated under certain conditions;

Whereas it is necessary to make the provisions for the implementation of Community measures entailing verification of the use and/or destination of goods consistent with evolving administrative methods; whereas in connection with the suppression of checks and formalities at internal frontiers it is appropriate to introduce further flexibility in administrative checks at offices of destination;

Whereas it is necessary for reasons connected with customs checks to align the provisions concerning the use of the consignment note CIM and the TR transfer note, by providing for the application of the customs stamp on sheet 1 of the TR transfer note;

Whereas it has become apparent that the Member States apply differing rules concerning the customs status of goods which have been abandoned to the Exchequer or seized or confiscated by the competent authorities; whereas, while these goods are not released for free circulation, a customs debt may still be incurred with regard to them; whereas it is therefore appropriate to lay down Community provisions to ensure that these goods do not enter into the Community's economic circuit without import duties being paid;

Whereas it is necessary to add to the list of boxes to be completed in the declaration in relation to the customs warehousing procedure in order to harmonize and facilitate customs checks on declarations used for the customs warehousing procedure;

Whereas it is appropriate to adapt the provisions relating to securities to take account of increased risks of fraud for certain categories of goods, in order to make those provisions more binding;

Whereas it is appropriate to insert into Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 the provisions amending the Community rules in force before the date of application of that Regulation;

Whereas errors and omissions produced during the transposition of the rules in force into the implementing provisions of the code should be corrected;

Whereas the measures provided for by this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee.
