EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations revoke and replace the Statistics of Trade (Customs and Excise) (Amendment) Regulations 2001, an error having occurred in the making of those Regulations.

These Regulations, which come into force on 28th October 2002, further amend the Statistics of Trade (Customs and Excise) Regulations 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations“).

Regulation 3(1) of these Regulations amends regulation 3(2) of the 1992 Regulations so as to establish a single time limit for furnishing supplementary declarations irrespective of the means (electronic or non-electronic) by which they are furnished. Regulations 3(2) and (3) of these Regulations make amendments consequential upon the amendment made by regulation 3(1).

Regulation 3(4) of these Regulations raises the monetary limit, at or below which the exemptions conferred by regulations 4(6) and (7) of the 1992 Regulations apply, to £13,500,000. A person whose annual value of goods arriving from, or dispatched to other member States does not exceed that monetary limit is not required to include particulars relating to delivery terms in his supplementary declarations.
