Amendments regarding customs representation

In brief

Government Decision no. 790/2014 which amends the provisions regarding customs representation of entities which perform customs operations has been published.

In detail

Legal entities which do not hold the status of customs brokers may act as indirect representatives for more than one entity before the customs authorities.  

Individuals can also exercise the customs representation activity as a professional activity.

As Order no. 4999/2007 for the approval of the technical norms on the implementation of the representation right1 is still in force and continues to limit indirect customs representation to a single entity for legal entities which are not customs brokers, we expect this Decision to take effect as of the amendment of this Order.

1 Order no. 4999/2007 for the approval of the technical norms on the implementation of the representation right provided in Council Regulation (EEC) no. 2913/1992 establishing the Community Customs Code and of the Guidelines for completion of boxes no. 2, 8, 14 and 54 of the single administrative document in specific cases arising from the type of representation.

The takeaway

Legal entities which do not hold the status of customs brokers can represent more than one entity before the customs authorities.
