Commission`s Opinion – EU acquis Chapter 29

Good level of preparation (4)

Ukraine has a good level of preparation in the area of the customs union. Ukraine is connected to the general EU Customs Information System (Common Communication Network) and is using New Computerised Transit System (NCTS). Ukraine is part of the Common Transit Convention which is 100% based on the Union Transit System. Customs legislation, although in majority approximated, requires some further alignment with the EU acquis, foreseen by the new Customs Code to be adopted in 2023. An improvement in administrative capacity in the IT sector needs to be prioritised. Some adjustments to current procedures and working methods in some operational areas would be needed to improve implementation and enforcement of the EU-aligned customs law.
