On September 12, 2019, the parliament of Ukraine adopted the Law on the common transit regime and the introduction of a national electronic transit system. The document introduces the provisions of the Convention on Common Transit into the Ukrainian legislation.
During the year, unified transit information exchange system, the New Computerised Transit System (NCTS), will operate in test mode in Ukraine. After the successful implementation of the system, Ukraine will join the common transit agreement with the European Union and some other countries.
Today there are 35 countries of the European region – EU members, EFTA, Turkey, Northern Macedonia and Serbia.
Joining the Convention will allow real-time exchange of customs information with participating countries, the use of a single customs declaration for the movement of goods from the country of departure to the destination country through the countries party to the Convention according to uniform rules, and the introduction of transit simplifications (authorized shipper / consignee, independent filling of seals, simplified declaration) and a general financial guarantee.
