The EEC Board approved the structure and format of the passenger customs declaration (PTD) in the form of e-document at a meeting held on May 12.


The document was adopted in elaborating the "electronic" Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union to expand the practice of e-interaction between individuals and customs authorities.


The requirements for the electronic PTD, which are common within the Union, are defined for the first time and will be used in a unified form in all Union countries.


The required scope of information corresponds to the scope of the passenger declaration determined by the Decision of the EEC Board On the customs declaration of goods for personal use adopted in 2019.


The Commission has proceeded with developing technical circuits for e-document structures and information provided for in this decision. They will be published in the relevant register on the Union’s official website.


The decision is scheduled to come into force on February 1, 2021, taking into account the time required for completing information systems in the Union countries. At the same time, it is synchronized with the entry into force of another Board’s Decision – On applying and filling out an electronic passenger customs declaration (PTD).


The Union’s data model was used in designing the PTD structure with due regard to harmonization with current structures of customs documents approved by the EEC.


In general, this refers to gradual expansion of paperless customs technologies in the Union States.​
