“We put at the forefront of electronic document management, electronic signature. We will move away from all paper technologies to the maximum. That is, for us, an electronic document (declaration) will be a key document. The decision to release the goods will be made by a computer based on the criteria that will be included in the computer program, ”Goshin said during the meetings of the customs services of the Customs Union and the CIS in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
“The decision to release the goods will be made automatically without the participation of a customs inspector. That is, we will try to minimize the influence of the human factor on making such decisions. At least 50% of the turnover can be transferred to this technology, ”he added.
According to Goshin, the introduction of electronic declaration of goods will sharply reduce the duration of cargo stay at the border. “First of all, I mean the land border. But taking into account Russian realities, where there is a large sea border, the technology will be extended to sea waters. We assume that the truck will spend no more than half an hour, and maybe 15 minutes at the land border. Otherwise, these are absolutely not production costs, ”the minister added.
Goshin noted that not only the customs service will change. “Participants of foreign economic activity must also change. We will look at the customs and tax reputation of these participants and show that it is profitable to work honestly with customs, ”he stressed.
The minister believes that all the plans can be implemented only with interagency cooperation between the customs service, tax authorities, authorities that issue various permits, licenses and certificates, the Ministry of Agriculture, the veterinary service and others. “All of this must be in electronic form. We understand that this is a rather complicated process. Therefore, we will submit this document to the level of heads of state so that there are appropriate instructions for all departments. In the near future, this document will appear on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission for study, ”Goshin said.
According to the head of the Federal Customs Service of Russia Andrei Belyaninov, customs reform work will continue.
The meetings were attended by the heads of the customs services of Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine. Based on materials retailer.ru.
