Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 March 2019 amending Regulation (EU) No 951/2013 establishing the Union Customs Code, which lays down general rules and procedures applicable to goods brought into or taken out of the customs territory of the European Union.
Following the entry into force of the new substantial provisions of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 in May 2016, the process of regular consultation with Member States and business resulted in the identification of errors and technical anomalies that need to be corrected in order to ensure legal certainty and consistency.
The European Commission therefore proposed to amend the Code with a view to correcting these technical errors and omissions, including the alignment of the Code with an international agreement that was not in force at the time of its adoption, namely, the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
The proposed Regulation also aims at addressing a request from Italy to include the municipality of Campione d'Italia and the Italian waters of Lake Lugano in the EU customs territory. The geographic location of the two territories as Italian exclaves within the territory of Switzerland has historically justified their exclusion from the EU customs territory, but Italy considers this exclusion to be no longer necessary.
