CLECAT, together with other members of the DG TAXUD Trade Contact Group, including the express industry, cargo owners, stakeholders in the air and maritime sector, IT service providers, as well as the American businesses active in Europe, issued a joint letter to Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni for Economy on the reform of the Union Customs Code. The signatories to the letter expressed serious concerns regarding the lack of realistic and sufficient timelines for the UCC IT implementation, and the insufficient consultation with the trade community on the ongoing UCC reform.
