Filing of export declarations (ABD)

The export declaration is the first stage of the 2-stage export process and must be submitted for all export goods originating in the EU with a weight over 1,000 kg or a goods value over 1,000 EUR.

Electronic export monitoring ZAPP (Customs clearance in Paperless Port)

Represents the second stage of the export procedure in Hamburg. ZAPP is used to present the goods to the Hamburg customs office of exit and to record statistics. The Hamburg customs office of exit uses the so-called B, Z or S numbers to monitor whether the goods declared for export are actually exported.

Electronic export monitoring HDS (Port Data Set)

The Port Data Set contains the data relevant to shipping for the terminal as well as the data relevant to customs for the second export procedure stage. This allows a so-called B, Z or S number to be generated via a Port Data Set (HDS).

Electronic export monitoring BHT (Bremen Port Telematics)

The customs offices of exit in Bremen and Bremerhaven use the BHT system. The outgoing goods are then presented to customs at the export stage. The data declarations are transmitted to the terminals and processed to monitor actual exports.

Electronic export monitoring WHT (Wilhelmshaven Telematics)

The most recent of the German seaports (Wilhelmshaven) uses the WHT system to process the presentation for the second export procedure stage. The local customs authorities there monitor whether the goods already declared in stage one are actually exported and collect further data for the terminals and the Federal Statistical Office.

Portbase registration (Electronic export monitoring in the Netherlands)

The Dutch customs authorities use Portbase to monitor exports. Portbase links the shipment-relevant data from the shipping companies’ booking confirmations with the customs data from the export documents and informs all parties involved about any relevant changes in status.

APCS (Electronic export monitoring in Belgium)

Serves to monitor the actual export of goods in the Belgian sea ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge. It is here that the shipping data of the ship owners are linked with the data of the customs declaration. The parties involved are then subsequently informed about possible status changes.

Exit summary declarations (ASumA)

Exit summary declarations are to be submitted where there is no customs registration or re-export registration with the data relevant to security or transit goods are leaving the sea port only after more than 14 days.

Preparation of T2L/T2LF documents

Dispatch document T2L is required as evidence of the customs status of EU goods. The T2LF is a separate form for goods transport in the jurisdiction of the EU, which is not part of the tax jurisdiction for excise duty and VAT.

Creating proof of preference and goods transport certificates (EUR.1)

The EUR.1 proof of preference, like the A.TR goods transport certificate, serves to exempt goods from or reduce duty rates on the basis of a free trade, preference or cooperation agreement with the European Community.
