Recently the Deputy Chairman of the Government held a working meeting with the leadership of the Federal Customs Service.

The prospects for the development of the service were discussed at the meeting, where the following planned innovations were noted:

– digitalization of most customs procedures;

– improvement of automation of customs control procedures performed without the participation of an inspector; 

– digital tracking of goods imported into the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union;

– implementation of a risk management system.

Also, during the meeting, important goals and areas of work of the Customs Service were noted:

– improving the efficiency and improvement of the current system;

 – focus on the opinion of entrepreneurs;

– implementation of feedback tools;

– further simplification of filling in declarations and registration of goods in electronic form;

 – increase of checkpoints equipped with modern equipment;

– the spread of the use of gadgets and mobile devices when filling out documentation.

In addition, the objectives of the development of a digital tracking system for goods imported into the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union were touched upon, which will ensure an increase in the competitiveness of domestic products.

Currently, the Federal Customs Service is testing mobile technologies during customs inspection, where manual filling in of necessary documents is replaced by a tablet. This method has long been proven to significantly reduce technical errors and reduce inspection time.

Finally, the risk management system was also mentioned – the division of companies and individuals into risk levels, where compliance with the requirements of the Customs Service is checked. This means that organizations with low customs risk can rely on a significant reduction in the number of control procedures and a reduction in the release time of goods.
