Today, submitting customs declarations in paper form is often no longer admissible. Over the last few years, customs administration has undergone considerable modernisation and, as a result, is increasingly using information technology for clearance processing. This modernisation is set to continue over the next few years.
Companies, too, are increasingly opting to use IT-based processes. The challenges here are, on the one hand, to implement processes in the system in such a way as to reflect in-company procedures, and on the other hand, to ensure that legal requirements with regard to customs are met. Both challenges companies with a variety of problems. For instance, not all in-company processes are strictly defined. And some may have to be re-designed in order to make them IT-compatible. The task of solving these problems and, at the same time, adhering to the regulations set forth by customs law seems almost impossible.
