Webinar agenda:
  • Get the compliance right, by Annette Reiser

With the 11th EU sanctions package from 24th of June 2023 the EU tightened the restrictions of imports of iron and steel goods by requiring importers of sanctioned iron and steel goods that have been processed in a third country to prove that the inputs used do not come from Russia. We will give an overview on the 11th EU sanctions package with the main focus on this topic.

  • CN, HS-Code and TARIC – what these abbreviations mean for the Classification of Goods, by Armin Belle

Typically, when new products are introduced, one of the regular customs-related questions that arises is what tariff number the new product falls under. Since this classification has a direct impact on duties payable and many other things, including export control, the classification of goods is critical to a smooth export and delivery process.

  • Learn the national rules and regulations, by Enrika Naujoke

Lithuania has introduced a national list of sanctioned goods and tightened controls at the borders. In some cases, a declaration from the manufacturer and an import declaration from the importing country are required. There are many other new requirements that will be discussed during the webinar.


The speakers are members of the Customs Knowledge Community (CKC).
