Development of informational support in the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation

On March 3, 2008, the customs authorities launched acceptance of electronic copies of customs documents (CCD, DCV, CTV and inventories), exclusively in XML format. According to comments, made by the personnel of the Central Administration for Information Technologies of the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, the transition to the new format ran its course as planned, and with no difficulties. It has become possible owing to a great deal of preliminary work, carried out by the Federal Customs Service units.

The constitutive essence of this format is its more recent (perfect) storage structure, and, respectively, information representation and processing. At the same time, applicability of this format is conditional as well upon the fact that it has become a recognized electronic data communication format, approve by the World Customs Organization.

During the transition period (the second half of 2007 and beginning of 2008) the participants of foreign trade activities were offered an opportunity of transfer of electronic-format customs document (CCD, DCV, CTV and inventories), to be submitted to customs authorities both in DBF and XML format. Beginning from March 3, 2008, provisions will be made for transfer of the abovementioned documents only in XML format.

Many of such primary arrangements can be referred to as workshops, carried out together with organizations-developers of software products, used by participants of foreign trade activity for the purpose of declaration of goods; preliminary testing of information and hardware facilities of customs authorities as well as joint product certification.
