Ukraine: Workshop on Advance Rulings and Public-Private Customs Coordination

February 23, 2021 - February 24, 2021

On February 23 and 24, CLDP will host a workshop on advance rulings for the origin of goods and public-private customs coordination for officials from Ukraine’s State Customs Service (SCS). This workshop is part of a series of workshops, started in November 2020, focused on assisting Ukraine to meet and exceed its WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement obligations to implement an effective advance ruling system. 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 workshop will focus specifically on best practices in issuing advance rulings related to determination of the origin of a good. Origin of goods determinations are important to importers in determining duties they must pay, whether the good benefits from a preferential trade agreement, any sanctions or import restrictions that may relate to the good, marking requirements, and more.  By improving the ability to issue advance rulings on the origin of goods, CLDP will assist Ukraine in ensuring that customs processes are more predictable and limit opportunities for boarder corruption. The workshop will include presentations from SCS officials as well as presentations from U.S. Customs and Border Protection experts. Finally, the workshop will introduce perspectives from the private sector trade community to encourage greater public-private coordination in the development and implementation of customs policies.
