The European Commission has launched a public consultation to document the impact analysis of a possible new initiative to develop a single window environment for customs.
The consultation is about the processes related to regulatory requirements from customs and other authorities (health, agriculture, environment, fisheries, etc.) that have to be fulfilled for the clearance of goods crossing European Union borders, and how they might be improved.
The results of the public consultation will feed into a study for DG TAXUD and be used as evidence for decisions about the initiative.
The consultation is open until 17 January 2019, and it is important to gather the views of as many businesses, individuals and other interested parties as possible.
