The European Commission is proposing an EU Customs Reform

The intent of a new EU Customs Reform is to “simplify customs processes for business. Especially for the most trustworthy traders” through the implementation of digital processes.

“The EU Customs Data Hub will allow goods to be imported into the EU with minimum customs intervention. And without compromising on safety, security or anti-fraud requirements.”

The EU Customs Reform aim is to better coordinate, monitor and enforce non-customs legislation. The question is: will this ultimately require more work by manufacturers in the UK to justify and communicate compliance of product to EU market (/safety) legislation? There seem to be potential benefits in that unnecessary hold-up of goods at customs borders ‘should’ be reduced.

If the proposal is accepted, we will not be seeing the implementation of the ‘Data Hub’ until 2028.
