Questions & Answers

What documents are required to make a customs declaration?

  • Authorization to act on behalf of the company (in original and properly signed by persons according to the company representation).
  • The company for which the customs declaration is made must have an EORI number.
  • Invoice, bill or other proof of payment for the goods (parcel).
  • Exact translation of the goods on the invoice.
  • Goods specification with indication of packaging as well as gross and net weights.
  • Bill of lading or other waybill accompanying the consignment.
  • A document confirming the origin of goods, if such information is not on the invoice or bill.
  • Appropriate document proving the preferential origin of goods or allowing for a reduction of customs duties, if this is possible for the goods concerned.
  • Any additional invoices indicating additional costs incurred in transporting the consignment (e.g. freight, insurance, road transport, port charges and others).
  • Any other additional costs that have been incurred for this shipment and are not included in the import or transport invoice.
  • In addition, depending on the type of goods imported, additional certificates, documents or licences may be required. Always check before each shipment of a new type of goods, what additional documents will be required and whether there are any import restrictions.

What is a CE?

The CE marking is a European mark of conformity which proves that the manufacturer has applied and met the relevant requirements contained in European directives or regulations, as well as in standards related to the product. It is a mark characterizing the appropriate level of product safety.

The main products that require CE marking are machines, toys, electrical equipment, construction products, medical devices and a range of other devices.


In case of doubts concerning the necessity of CE marking, it is best to contact the Trade Inspection or certification body.


What is a BTI?

This is Binding Tariff Information (BTI), i.e. a decision issued by a customs and treasury administrative body deciding on the tariff classification for the indicated goods, i.e. determining the correct Customs Tariff code for a given product.

BTI assists in carrying out customs clearance quickly and efficiently. If a customs authority is in doubt about the classification of goods, and consequently the duty rate, the BTI decision is binding on the customs authorities and the holder of the decision.

A BTI decision is issued for a period of 3 years by the Tax Administration Chamber in Warsaw.

Where can I find information about the duty rate?

The duty rates to be paid when goods are released for circulation within the European Union are published in the annex to the Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff.

The Common Customs Tariff is updated at the end of each year with the date of application from the new year, but duty rates may also change during the year if the European Commission determines that there are economic reasons for this. An additional regulation is then issued which changes the level of the duty rate or imposes additional duties.

In the ISZTAR4 web browser you can find information about the customs duty rate, VAT, certain restrictions and requirements that goods must meet to be imported into and exported outside the EU.
