EU CSW-CERTEX supports the interconnection between Member States’ customs national import/export/transit systems and several databases of partner DG, hosting several non-customs formalities (such as veterinary, sanitary, environmental, and other formalities).

The ABCs of the EU Single Window Environment for Customs

Regulation (EU) 2022/2399 establishing the EU Single Window Environment for Customs was entered into force in November 2022. This Regulation provides a new legal framework to improve information sharing and digital cooperation between customs authorities and other government authorities (known as partner competent authorities) in charge of enforcing non-customs regulatory formalities at the EU border in areas such as health and safety, environmental protection, food and product safety, agriculture, etc. This, in turn, will allow economic operators to clear certain customs formalities more easily.
