How to comply with the prohibitions and restrictions on trade with the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union and the rules of filling out the statistical form of accounting was told by Dmitry Shishkin, Acting Head of Ekaterinburg Customs. He noted the growth of errors detected in statistical forms: about 60% of such documents are put under control at Ekaterinburg Customs. Such deficiencies on the part of foreign trade participants lead to the initiation of cases on administrative offenses and fines for businesses

I ask you to draw the attention of specialists responsible for forming and sending statistical forms to the customs authorities to the need to provide complete and accurate information about goods when accounting for them in mutual trade to avoid negative consequences associated with non-compliance with prohibitions and restrictions,” Dmitry Shishkin appealed to the members of the Advisory Council
