Notice: Acts deemed to be a customs declaration or a re-export declaration

To mitigate the effect of Brexit on postal and courier consignments released for export, the Customs Department has decided to adopt articles 141 (4) and (4a) of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446.  Therefore, goods in a postal consignment the value of which does not exceed EUR 1 000 shall be deemed to be declared for export by their exit from the customs territory of the Union.
 
Additionally, goods in express consignments, the value of which does not exceed EUR 1 000 shall be deemed to be declared for export by their presentation to the customs office of exit, provided that full data in the export manifest and invoice are available to and accepted by the customs authorities.  It is within the officer’s discretion to decide whether or not to inspect the consignment.
 
This will enter into effect from Friday, 1st January 2021 only if all the below criteria are met:
 
  1. It is an outright exportation, i.e. procedure code 1000000 applies AND;
  2. Goods are not liable to export duty AND;
  3. The invoice value does not exceed EUR 1,000 AND;
  4. The consignment is not subject to P & R (prohibitions and restrictions), e.g. military equipment, dual use goods, antiques and articles or objects of historical value, carts, cabs and landaus, Malta stone and objects made there from, rough diamonds and certain petroleum products.
