The European Commission has announced a proposed new initiative that will make it easier for different authorities involved in goods clearance to exchange electronic information submitted by traders, who will be able to submit the information required for import or export of goods only once. The initiative is dubbed the ‘EU Single Window Environment for Customs‘, and aims to enhance cooperation and coordination between different authorities, in order to facilitate the automatic verification of non-customs formalities for goods entering or leaving the EU to modernise and streamline customs controls, facilitate trade and improve cooperation.
