What is the registration number of the customs declaration?
Having received the DT from the declarant, the customs inspector checks the correctness of the information declared in it with the real content of the declared cargo. If the inspector does not have any complaints either to the content or to the design of the DT, he assigns a unique number to the document and endorses it with an individual seal. Prior to the assignment of the DT number, the declarant must submit to the customs documents confirming the payment of advance duties and fees. Only then is the release of goods allowed by customs.

Issuance of a customs declaration for goods is the final stage of customs clearance of goods. The inspector endorses DT with the stamp “Release permitted” by customs. This means that from this moment the declared goods have been moved across the customs border, and they can be used under the chosen procedure without restrictions throughout the entire space of the Customs Union.
