The Swiss customs administration must, following amendments to the Common Transit Procedure Convention, review and re-evaluate permits relating to authorized consignee and consignor status in Switzerland—Zugelassener Versender [ZV] / Zugelassener Empfänger [ZE]. Companies with AEO status are excluded from this review process because they are deemed already to satisfy the applicable conditions.
Beginning 1 July 2019, all current ZV/ZE holders as well as new applicants will be subject to the stricter conditions.
Not complying with these requirements within the deadline could trigger the suspension or removal of the license.
By 1 July 2019, ZV/ZE holders must comply with the new requirements.
