Released 31 January 2019

SI 2019/148 amends SI 2003/3113 and SI 2018/1260 to make provision for civil customs penalties post Brexit.

The Customs (Contravention of a Relevant Rule) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are made by the Treasury in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union. They make amendments to the secondary legislation imposing civil penalties on those who contravene customs rules relating to the import and export of goods into the UK in order to ensure that there is a functioning penalty regime following exit day in the event that the UK leaves the EU with no deal. The regulations amend the Customs (Contravention of a Relevant Rule) Regulations 2003 (SI 2003/3113) (previously amended by the Customs (Contravention of a Relevant Rule) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 (SI 2018/1260) to make provision for the imposition of civil penalties relating to:

breaches of export rules which are contained in the Customs (Export) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/108);

breaches of record keeping rules which are contained in the Customs (Records) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/113).

The regulations further amend SI 2018/1260 to correct errors. The corrections come into force on 18 February 2019 and the amendments with effect from a day to be appointed. The regulations were made on 29 January 2019.
