To ensure the implementation of the Law of Ukraine No. 2530 “On Amendments to the Customs Code of Ukraine and Other Legislative Acts of Ukraine concerning the Implementation of the “Single window” Mechanism and Optimization of Control Procedures for Goods Crossing the Customs Border of Ukraine” concerning the adjustment of the regulations of the Cabinet of Ministers to this Law, the Government has amended paragraph 7 of the Regulation on State Border Points and Control Points.
What is it about?
Provisions of the Regulation on State Border Points and Control Points approved by the Decree of the Government No. 751 of August 18, 2010 regulate sanitary, quarantine, ecological, radiological control as well as control over the transfer of culture objects at state border crossing points and control points.
However, the Law No. 2530 contains amendmenets to the Customs Code stipulating that official control measures at border crossing points (control points) take place in the scope required to let goods cross the customs border of Ukraine to deliver them to destination points on the territory of Ukraine or to the point of departure from the customs territory of Ukraine or of their release under the declared customs mode in accordance with the purpose of their import to Ukraine.
Official control measures refer to phytosanitary control, veterinary and sanitary control as well as state control of compliance with the legislation on food products, fodder, subproducts of animal origin, health and treatment of animals conducted according to the legislation of Ukraine.
Article 222 of the Customs Code stipulates that fiscal authorities at border crossing points control the compliance of trucking transport companies with the legislation of Ukraine on international road transport in accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On International Road Transport”.
Thus, the list of the types of control measures taking place at border crossing points and control points in the cases set by law has been updated and adjusted to the Customs Code with amendments as per the Law No. 2530 (sanitary and quarantine control, ecological and radiological control as well as control over the transfer of culture objects have been canceled).
What is the benefit?
The above amendments allow to adjust the provisions of the Regulation on Border Points and Control Points to the Customs Code of Ukraine.
This is one of the four decrees of the Cabinet of Ministers submitted by the Ministry of Finance to the Government to adjust the acts of the Government to the Law No. 2530. The rest is to follow.
