– The President, the Government of the Russian Federation, as well as the Eurasian Economic Commission have taken a large number of measures aimed at ensuring the stability of the country’s economy and reducing the financial and administrative burden on business. A significant part of them directly relates to the customs sphere. The work of the customs service in the new realities was promptly reconfigured, while special attention was paid to the implementation of a set of measures for the comprehensive support of foreign economic activity participants, – said Alexey Vladimirovich. – Significant changes have been made to the procedure for monitoring compliance with technical regulation measures when importing goods, the procedure for confirming the origin of goods imported into the customs territory of the EAEU has been simplified. As part of reducing the financial burden on business and increasing the stability of the economies of the EAEU member states, a number of decisions were made: decisions of the EEC Council dated March 17, 2022 No. 34, March 17, 2022 No. 37, April 5, 2022 No. 46, April 15, 2022 No. 76 , decisions of the EEC Board dated 04.12.2022 No. 63, dated 04.19.2022 No. 66, which zeroed customs duties on more than 1,200 imported goods (mainly food, medicines, essential goods, components for production needs). All decisions regarding the simplification and acceleration of customs and other control procedures, reducing the financial burden on business are immediately communicated by the customs authorities to business representatives and interested parties. An operational headquarters has been set up in the FCS of Russia, in which representatives of the business community take part. At the moment, the socio-economic situation in the country is changing quite quickly, so the list of support measures is under constant development and will be supplemented and updated.
