COSS operating scheme
Here are some brief details on the steps to follow
Project description. Abbreviations
The outline of the functioning of the COSS described below is open-ended, in the sense that not all of the steps have to be followed necessarily. Operators can choose when they wish to enter, although it is important to note that, to ensure coordination of all the Services involved in a possible physical inspection of the goods, the information should ideally be sent to the system as soon as possible.
COSS: Database of the customs one-stop shop. This is the tool that enables cooperation and interaction of operators, Border Inspection Services, Port and Customs Authorities, in order to coordinate inspections of goods in containers in a one-stop system for the purposes of border checks.
SIF : Border Inspection Services, Non-customs bodies authorised to perform border checks on imports and exports of goods.
IF : Request for Intervention to a SIF.
PreSAD: customs declaration presented before arrival of goods. To the extent that it will be implemented in two stages, and in accordance with the contents provided by the operator, it may have two modalities and/or functions:
- PreDUA-MRN Request , this is a declaration that only includes a series of minimum data in order to obtain an MRN that can be incorporated as a charging document in the Intervention Requests that the operator will present to the SIF, and that it serves as a uniting element for the information sent.
- PreSAD: Complete declaration, submitted before the arrival of the merchandise.
MRN: Registration number of the customs declaration.
SAPL (C-5): Request for actions before the release of goods. An additional motive to the current C-5 will be included for this procedure.
