France: Customs declaration form is amended

With the introduction of the DELTA customs system in France in 2023, the standard form, le document administratif unique (DAU), will be phased out after more than 35 years of use by all companies involved in international trade. by

As a mandatory form for every import or export transaction, it served as the basis for completing customs formalities throughout the European Union and in Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Iceland.

The new customs declaration

The customs declaration still needs to be abolished, and it is still necessary for an economic operator to be able to assign imported or exported goods to the customs procedure. The format of the customs declaration will remain the same to meet the requirements of the Union Customs Code for the paperless processing of customs formalities. A computer record will replace the 56 boxes of the Single Administrative Document.

The Directorate General of Customs and Indirect Taxes (Direction générale des douanes et droits indirects, DGDDI), the French Customs and Border Protection Agency invites you to read the recently published leaflet on the new customs declaration to answer the questions that economic operators may have. The leaflet describes the revised customs declaration’s origin, objectives, and structure.

A comparison table of the data from the Single Administrative Document and the new customs declaration will soon supplement the documentation.
