Ukraine: Kickoff Workshop on Advance Rulings


On November 9 and 10, CLDP hosted a virtual workshop for 40 officials from Ukraine’s State Customs Service (SCS) focused on advance rulings. Advance rulings are decisions made by customs at the request of a relevant importer or exporter on specific questions related to the import or export of goods in question. This can include information made before export related to the classification, valuation, or origin of the good in question. This workshop was the first in a series of engagements aimed at helping Ukraine towards its goal of instituting a robust advance ruling system in line with international best practices. SCS officials shared the status of their current system, including gaps in implementation and goals for improvement, and heard from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Slovak Customs experts regarding their respective experience implementing advance ruling systems.
