Notice to importers

Imports into the Union of goods originating in the non-government controlled areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts of Ukraine

(2022/C 93 I/01)

Council Regulation (EU) 2022/263 of 23 February 2022 concerning restrictive measures in response to the recognition of the non-government controlled areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine and the ordering of Russian armed forces into those areas (1), introduced a prohibition to import into the European Union goods originating in those areas as of the day following that of its publication.

Importers in the Union are advised to take due care to ascertain the actual origin of the goods that they declare since risks exist that goods subject to the prohibition provided for in the above mentioned Regulation are imported into the Union from neighbouring countries of Ukraine, in particular Russia and Belarus. This may be specially the case for coal products of heading CN 2701 and steel products of headings CN 7201 to 7207 and of headings CN 7304, 7305 and 7306. In view of that risk of circumvention, the release for free circulation of these products imported from Russia and Belarus may be subject to the provision to customs of conclusive evidence that these goods are not included under the import prohibition of goods originating in the non-government controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk of Ukraine.
