Customs Authorisation and Approval

Overview of customs regimes and procedures requiring prior authorisation or approval: Exemption from a Prescribed Itinerary for Transit Movements

Under the Community Customs Code (Reg. No. 2913/92), this simplification exempted economic operators from being required to adhere to a prescribed routing or itinerary for transit movements.

High value goods in Annexe 44c of the Community Customs Code Implementing Regulations (Reg. No. 2454/93) have not been carried over to the Code Annexes.

Under the new Implementing Regulation (IA), article 298, a prescribed itinerary is only required where the customs authorities or holder of the procedure deems it necessary on a movement by movement basis. A prescribed itinerary is not routinely required.

The exemption from a prescribed itinerary simplification has not been carried over under the Code and is no longer necessary.

These authorisations will cease with effect from 1 May 2016 as there is no longer a requirement for them.
