According to the EC release, the changes include: 

  • Clarification and simplification of the rules for issuing a long-term supplier's declaration (for instance, re-introduction of the possibility of issuing at any point in the year, a single declaration covering the full calendar year) 
  • More time being allotted for obtaining a registered exporter (REX) number for the purposes of trade facilitation agreements, particularly for the EU-Canada agreement 
  • International road transport being better secured in financial terms because the limit up to which any guaranteeing association may become liable in relation to a particular international road transport (TIR) operation has increased from €60,000 to €100,000 
  • Clarification of the rules for designating the customs office of exit in cases of export followed by transit of excise goods
