The European Commission has advised that no objections have been raised by the European Parliament and Council regarding the Union Customs Code (UCC) Delegated Act (DA).
Neither of the two institutions have asked for an additional delay of two months as legally permitted. Both the Parliament and Council had until 21 October to reject the proposed DA and the lack of objection means that the DA will now pass into law.
After discussions within the Customs code committee on 29 and 30 October, some minor textual changes were agreed.
At the time of writing, the Commission was expecting the adoption of the Implementing Act by the member states in the coming weeks.
A final draft has been circulated among the national administrations for consideration.
The Commission believed that the Implementing Acts would be formally adopted by the Customs code committee on 6 November. The IN/DA will then be sent for translation and ready for publication before the end of 2015.See all News
