SI 2021/830 amends import and export customs controls regulations to replace the temporary system with a full controls system from 1 January 2022.
The Customs and Excise Border Procedures (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) Regulations 2021 make amendments to the requirements for import and export customs controls which were introduced to replace previously applicable EU customs legislation following the UK’s exit from the EU. The amendments provide for the removal of the staged customs controls which were put in place on a temporary basis following the end of the transition period and replace those controls with new procedures which will provide for full customs controls. The regulations come into force on 1 January 2022, except certain amendments which come into force earlier on 4 August 2021.
