Implementation period and key dates

Production Start: The system will go live on October 1, 2024.

Implementation Period: A transition period will run until December 2, 2024, during which users will gradually adapt to the new features.

Three Steps of the New Export Process

  1. Export Declaration: The exporter or a customs broker prepares and submits a standard customs declaration digitally.

  2. Notification to the Export Office: When the goods arrive at the place of export, a notification is made to the customs office.

  3. Notification of Export: Once the goods have left the EU, a final notification is sent confirming that the goods have been exported.

Roller i Exportprocessen

Roles in the Export Process

Declarant: This can be the exporter themselves or a hired customs broker such as Tullify.

Carrier: Responsible for submitting the necessary notifications to the customs offices during the export process.

Main Types of Export Declarations

Standard Customs Declaration

This is the basic option for companies that have all the necessary information available at the time of loading the goods. By submitting a digital standard customs declaration directly at the time of loading, companies can quickly and easily fulfill export requirements.

Simplified Export Declaration

For situations where not all information is available at the time of loading, the Swedish Customs provides the option to use a simplified declaration. This initial simplified declaration is followed up with a supplementary declaration within 10 days from the submission of the original declaration.

Entry in the Declarant’s Records

This option allows a customs declaration to be created directly from the declarant's own accounting system. Although this option is currently only applicable for exports to Norway, it represents a flexible solution for companies handling frequent shipments to this country. Full implementation of this system is planned for 2025.

Export to Norway

For goods exported to Norway, there are options for digital submission, visits to the customs office, or using digital border crossing at certain border points.

Key Points for Companies Preparing for the New Declaration Methods

  • Familiarize Yourself with Different Declaration Options: Determine which option best matches your company's needs and the specific situations you handle.

  • Stay Updated with the Latest Guidelines: Follow updates from the Swedish Customs, including detailed declaration guides that will be published shortly.

  • Plan Ahead for the Transition: Ensure a smooth adaptation by planning in advance for the transition to the new declaration methods, minimizing disruptions to your export activities.

The new export declaration system provides companies with increased flexibility and efficiency in managing international shipments. By understanding and utilizing these various options, companies can better adapt their processes to both current and future regulations.

Centraliserad klarering och tillstånd

Centralized Clearance and Permits

Companies that obtain a permit for centralized clearance (CCL) can manage their export customs declarations centrally from a single member state.

The new export system will offer significant benefits for Swedish exporters, including faster and simpler export processes as well as better alignment with international standards and EU regulations.

For more information on how this system can benefit you and your company, you can watch the Swedish Customs' videos about the export system on the Swedish Customs website.

The Path of Goods Leaving Sweden

We at Tullify want to give you an overview of the smooth and digitalized customs handling process when goods leave Sweden and the EU.

When goods are exported from Sweden, there is a digital exchange of information in several steps, between different actors and at different times, to ensure that everything is done correctly.


Customs supervision is a crucial part of this process. It includes all measures taken by the Swedish Customs for goods that are imported, stored, exported, or re-exported. Goods declared for export, internal Union transit, or outward processing are under this supervision from the acceptance of the customs declaration until the goods leave the EU customs territory, are handed over to the state, destroyed, or the declaration is invalidated.

When goods are under customs supervision, the holder, or anyone else, cannot take any action with the goods without the consent of the Swedish Customs. This prevents alterations, dispersal, or evasion of controls, minimizing the risk of restricted goods leaving the EU without authorization.

To ensure this supervision, several notifications and declarations are required:

Declaration for Customs Procedure or Re-export

When: Before the Swedish Customs accepts the declaration.
Why: To ensure that all restrictions are met and that trade statistics are accurate.

Under Customs Supervision

When: From the moment the export customs office accepts the customs declaration until the goods leave the EU customs territory.

Why: To monitor that the goods declared for export actually leave the EU.

Notification of Goods to the Export Customs Office

When: Upon the goods' arrival at the place of export.

Why: So that the Swedish Customs can confirm that the goods are cleared for export.

Notification of Export

When: When the goods leave the EU customs territory.

Why: To inform the Swedish Customs about which goods have been exported.

Proof of Export

When: After the goods have left the EU customs territory.

Why: To provide evidence to the Swedish Customs that the goods have been exported.
