Customs & Trade Facilitation

The Customs and Trade Facilitation Committee supports changes to legislation which aim to provide standard simplified customs procedures and systems to be implemented across the EU. Such procedures and systems are beneficial to both customs and trade, as they facilitate the movement of goods, encourage compliance with customs rules and enable more effective use of both business and customs resources. This would provide a platform for business operating in Europe to remain competitive in international trade. 

AmCham EU strongly advocates for an effective partnership between customs, traders and third parties within international trade. As such, the CTF Committee has been an active participant in the various consultation processes on customs.
