Union legal framework for customs infringements and sanctions (A8-0239/2016 - Kaja Kallas)

  Doru-Claudian Frunzulică (S&D), in writing. ‒ The main objectives of the proposal are to bridge the gap between different legal regimes through a common platform of rules and to enhance the level playing field between economic operators in the Customs Union. To this end, it includes a common list of infringements and establishes a common scale of administrative sanctions. Having divergent sanctions poses problems to economic operators, to international trade relations (pressure from WTO is quoted in the impact assessment), and creates uneven compliance costs and administrative burden that could make some Member States more ‘attractive’ (forum shopping). I voted in favour of the report.
