Local export clearance procedure using electronic declarations
With a local export clearance procedure using electronic declarations, you file export declarations by filing electronic export declarations. You need not present the goods to a customs office, but rather perform all export formalities from within your own business. Customs will perform random inspections of your exports.
Applying for a licence
For this procedure, you will need the local export clearance procedure licence for use with electronic declarations. To apply for this licence, you should fill in an application form and send it to your customs office. You can download: Aanvraag Vergunning domiciliëringsprocedure uitvoer (only available in Dutch).
The local export clearance procedure using electronic declarations is actually an 'ordinary' electronic declaration, which offers additional options allowing you:
- to declare goods for export for other parties
- to send consignments of goods from another party's location
This means that if you have a licence you may declare goods for export at someone else's instructions. You may declare goods for all locations listed in the licence. These locations need not be under your management. Customs agents and other logistic service providers often possess
such a licence.
