Question for written answer  E-001889/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Hélène Laporte (ID)
 Subject: Customs controls

The European Union has exclusive competence for customs legislation.

In 2019, Member States made EUR 21.4 billion in customs duties available to the EU budget, representing 13% of total EU budget revenue.

A report by the European Court of Auditors highlighted the lack of coordination and harmonisation between Member States.

For example, the proportion of import declarations subject to controls varied considerably between Member States, ranging from 1% to 60%.

Furthermore, the auditors found that Member States had different rules for rejecting items to be checked selected by the risk management system.

1. Why did the Commission use the JAC pilot project, which contains little information due to the experimental nature of the exercise, to analyse trade flows?

2. Does the Commission intend to penalise Member States that do not use the CRMS platform for systematic information sharing?

3. Is the Commission considering further action to ensure that customs controls on e-commerce imports are effective in the light of the increasing risk of irregularities?
