Practice Area Definition

Customs and Excise Law Definition

This is the area of public law concerning movement of goods across the border. The customs law provides answers to the questions: what is the tariff and what bans and restrictions apply to goods when they are imported or exported? That is customs law in short. In broader terms, however, there are a series of details that should not be underestimated, all of them being equally important as they can all impact seriously on virtually any import-export operation.  

These details are: customs valuation, tariff classification, certification of goods, licensing of commercial operations, sanitary, phytosanitary and veterinary rules, export controls, country of origin determination, customs procedures, and free trade agreements. This list is not exhaustive and professional advice is recommended on a case-by-case basis. Customs lawyers provide advice to help importers/exporters in complying with the customs rules and regulations when moving goods across the border.
 
At the same time, customs law overlaps to some extent with the white-collar crime field. That is why customs lawyers defend clients in criminal and administrative cases involving customs crimes, such as smuggling and tax evasion in customs and administrative cases, erroneous declaration of goods to the customs, and many other administrative customs offences.   

Quite often, customs-related disputes arise between the customs authorities and importers/exporters. Customs lawyers may represent clients in relevant administrative proceedings, negotiations, or litigation. In addition, customs lawyers are administrative and regulatory attorneys who provide services to individual and corporate clients seeking advice about complex government laws, rules, regulations, procedures, permission, applications, or enforcement matters in connection with import and export operations. 

Finally, customs law is closely related to trade law and customs lawyers may represent clients in classic trade cases relating to such matters as anti-dumping, countervailing, special duties and measures, export control, and other customs/tariff classifications and regulatory work.
