Due to the creation of the Customs Union by the Republic of Kazakhstan, Republic of Belarus and Russian Federation, formerly separate customs territories of these countries are now combined in a uniform customs territory of the Customs Union.

Member countries of the Customs Union do not impose on each other customs duties and other economic constraints except for special protective, antidumping and countervailing measures.

Within the Customs Union there is a uniform customs tariff and other measures to regulate trade in goods with third countries.

The uniform measures of regulation are provided in the area of technical regulations, sanitary, veterinary and phytosanitary supervision, as well as in licensing.

In regards to some goods, there are certain prohibitions or restrictions on import or export between members of the Eurasian Economic Community and third countries. Such prohibitions or restrictions are implemented through compulsory licensing of exportation and importation of goods. With respect of other goods there is mandatory confirmation of conformity. In addition, the legislation the Customs Union requires certain documents such as special permits, notifications, certificates of state registration, veterinary certificates, expert opinions and other permits and approvals.

Please note that in practice there are numerous problems associated with inconsistency of the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan with the legislation of the Customs Union, which is the reason why companies often need qualified legal assistance when implementing import or export within the Customs Union.

GRATA Law Firm’s experts have extensive experience in providing services within the customs legislation of Kazakhstan. We regularly summarise information about specific problems appeared in practice and opportunities to eliminate them.
