European Commission proposes recast of Modernised Customs Code to establish a Union Customs Code
The European Commission on 20 February proposed a recast of the Regulation establishing the Modernised Customs Code (MCC) to establish a Union Customs Code.
The MCC Regulation was adopted and entered into force in 2008 but was not yet in application. The recast Regulation will, as regards customs legislation provide the same benefits as those expected from the Modernised Customs Code, while aligning it to the Lisbon Treaty.
The text of the proposal is available from our website.
