A round table for representatives of timber and timber products exporting companies was held at the Irkutsk Customs Office

It was attended by experts from NTU, Siberian electronic and Irkutsk customs. In addition to Irkutsk timber exporters, the round table was joined by forestry enterprises from other regions of the SFD, as well as representatives of JSC “Russian Railways”, regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Unions of timber producers and other public organizations. The total number of participants amounted to more than 40 people

“High-quality customs control of timber products is a priority for Irkutsk Customs. At the same time, conscientious business can feel a reduction in the burden, as customs control for low-risk companies is now becoming almost invisible,” said Sergei Sabantsev, head of Irkutsk Customs

The experts of STU told about the peculiarities of classification of goods of the timber industry in accordance with TN VED of the EAEU, currency regulation, formation and control of the customs value of exported timber. The questions received from participants of foreign economic activity were thoroughly answered

“Customs authorities are interested in an open dialog with business representatives. Given the forest resource potential of Siberia, methodological assistance and clarification of practical aspects of law enforcement practice in this area are necessary,” – said Dmitry Kolykhanov

The materials of the round table are available on the STU website in the “Attention to participants of foreign trade” section.
