The internal market of the European Union (single market) is an area where goods circulate in the same terms as in the internal market of each country. This rule applies when the movement of goods takes place within the territory of the European Community, without leaving it. In case the goods leave the customs territory of the EU and re-enter it, they should be presented at the customs office of entry for their Community status to be confirmed.
The main document which proves the Community status of goods is the T2L certificate. However, for the sake of customs simplifications, other pieces of evidence can be used to prove the Community status (e.g. the indication Status C on the manifest).
In KALAFATIS & CO, we undertake all the customs formalities required to certify the Community status of your goods, as well as the transaction with any other involved body (e.g. shipping companies, transport companies, container stations, etc.).
