We have IP and End-Use procedures which don’t expire until November 2016 and February 2017 respectively. We understand that the Union Customs Code (UCC) becomes law in May 2016. Do we have to reapply for our approvals before May 2016 or can we continue to use our current customs authorisation?

You may continue to use these authorisations and approvals until their expiry date or until 30 April 2019, whichever is earliest. The responsibility will be with you to reapply in good time before the expiry date to be approved under UCC conditions. If you fail to reapply in good time there can no extensions to the current authorisations and your approvals will cease.
