Accreditation of Customs Representatives
CLECAT advocates the accreditation of E.U. based Customs representatives. For this purpose, "Customs representative" should be defined as "any natural or legal person established in the European Union who hold themselves out as providers of Customs services to third parties".
Accreditation should be a legal requirement for all Customs representatives established in the EU and it should be granted oby the national authority on the basis of common E.U. criteria.
