Extension of NCTS to Croatia and Turkey

Posted on: 27/04/2012

The NCTS (New Computer Transit System) procedure is an electronic tracking and tracing system introduced in 2005 to provide Common Transit control on the movement of goods between the 27 EU Member States and the EFTA countries (Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland).  The rules are effectively identical to those of Community transit which covers goods coming under Customs control (ie T1 Goods, transfer between customs regimes (IPR/Warehouse) within the EU.

The EU Council has agreed on the decision taken by the European Union on the issuing of an invitation to Croatia and Turkey to accede to the two Conventions that cover this activity (Common Transit Procedure and the Convention on the Simplification of Formalities in Trade of Goods both signed of 20 May 1987).  This means the way is open for both Croatia and Turkey to join the NCTS simplification for moving freight from 1st July 2012.  Remember, Croatia is due to become a full member of the EU on 1st July 2013.
