Newsletter 14/2023: New import obligations for recipients

We would like to inform you about a new EU mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from imported goods. This is the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism, also known as CBAM.

Dear Customers,
 
We would like to inform you about a new EU mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from imported goods. This is the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism, also known as CBAM.
CBAM applies to imported raw materials and products from third countries whose production is associated with increased greenhouse gas emissions. In the first, transitional phase, importers are required to notify. From 1 October 2023 to 31 December 2025, they must report quarterly to the European Commission on the emissions contained in the imported goods.
 
A CBAM Trader Portal has been created for the submission of quarterly reports. Access to the portal is only available to importers or indirect customs agents who are registered in the UUM&DS (EU Unified User Management and Digital Signature System).
 
The second phase of implementation, representing the full operation of the border carbon offsetting mechanism, will apply from 1 January 2026.
 
The competent authority in the Czech Republic has been designated as the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic together with the Ministry of the Environment. The Customs Administration of the Czech Republic will be responsible for granting access to the CBAM register set up by the European Commission, receiving applications for CBAM declarant authorisations and supervising the fulfilment of import obligations. The Ministry of the Environment will carry out checks on CBAM declarations in relation to the embedded emissions and the number of CBAM certificates to be phased out.
 
Information on the CBAM mechanism will be progressively published on the websites of the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic, the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic.
 

The subject of the carbon duty will be (CN):
