Week of Customs Changes in Russia

28 June 2011, 16:51 / SeaNews / Rating: 885



Starting with June 29 the customs will be responsible for transport, sanitary, veterinary, quarantine and phitosanitary control on the RF border. And since July 1 customs control is moved from the Russian boarder to the borders of the Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

The customs expects it will take some 1.5-2 months to set right the new system of transport, sanitary, veterinary, quarantine and phitosanitary control. After the process gets standard, the effect is expected to be a 20-30% reduction in cross-border operations time for cargo.

How much time will be required to get right the new customs control system on the outer borders of the Customs Union is unknown. As to the effect of the move, both the customs and business expect problems (and fear a collapse).

One of the problems is the personnel. Moving customs control to the Customs Union border closes 35 customs checkpoints and makes redundant some 3,500 customs officers. To perform the additional functions of transport, sanitary, veterinary, quarantine and phitosanitary control the customs needs over 1,000 new specialists.

The customs will try to close the gap by redeploying some of its personnel in the short term, but in the future expects to employ some of the specialists that were made redundant in other governmental agencies responsible for transport, sanitary, veterinary, quarantine and phitosanitary control.
