An example

- The simple erroneous attribution of the Customs Code, involves sanctions and import, a criminal offense. Many rely on the shipper or carrier in the determination of the Customs Code , and in some cases may work, only that the codes are changed, the law is very lively in this area;

- In order to protect themselves from the risk would be advisable to seek the advice of customs with a BTI ( Binding Tariff Information ), which is valid in all the customs of the world for 6 years (reduced the time by the standards of the New EU Customs Code). This is because when the Customs in a sample check to recognize a fault, it should be back to check the previous 3 years, and if the Company inadvertently and in good faith was based on an incorrect Customs Code, it would automatically be subject to a penalty cumulative often of enormous proportions.

- Therefore, it is important to devote the proper attention and obtain information from qualified individuals, when considering a share of exports and even more so in the case of FDI (foreign direct investment).
