It is said in the statement of the press office of the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is also stated that the Eurasian Economic Commission received all notes from all member states certifying that they completed the domestic procedures required for coming of the Protocol into force.
"It is very important that the member states decided to support Kazakhstan in its zeal to join the World Trade Organization and work out such an approach that will allow Kazakhstan to fulfill the joining obligations to the fullest extent and minimize the risks arising for the markets of the member states.
The Protocol going to become effective is extremely important in order to maintain the common commodity market and competitive environment in the EEU," the Minister of Trade of the EEC Andrey Slepnev stated.
It is noted in the EEC's statement that the goods imported to Kazakhstan at the lowered duties will be brought only to the Kazakh market. The importer should pay the export duties at the CCT rates immediately after the entry in order that the goods will be awarded the status of the EEU's goods and one can supply them to other member states.
"Such approach will allow Kazakhstan to fulfill its obligations for joining the WTO in full with regard to the tariff liberalization when the level of tariff shelter for entrepreneurs from the other member states will not decrease. Also, it will not create a significant additional encumbrance for the suppliers. It is a better and fair decision. In the following, the EEC will work out possibilities to decrease some rates of the CCT duties to the level of Kazakhstan's obligations in order to decrease the number of withdrawn goods," Andrey Slepnev marks.
Kazakhstan undertook not to admit the export of the goods from the withdrawal list to the other EEU countries that were imported at the lowered duty rates. It is necessary to maintain the competitive environment on the single market of the union. For this purpose, a special accounting system will be created on the basis of electronic invoices and exchange of data on such goods will be established among the authorized bodies of the EEU countries on a real-time basis. It is planned that the electronic invoice system will be launched in 2016.
The suppliers of the goods from the withdrawal list from Kazakhstan to the other EEU countries will enter the data in the accounting system and tie it to the data of the customs on the rate, at which the goods were imported from the third countries. In case of transfer to the other member states, a special shipping document will be required.
The customs control will not be renewed at the internal boundaries but the control services will track the supplies of the withdrawn goods within their powers, and the customs services can apply the control facilities after the delivery (post control).
In addition, Kazakhstan undertook not to admit the export of goods and their derivatives subject to veterinary control, to which the requirements are applied, which are different from the EEU's requirements. For this purpose, the computer-based system of tracking of such goods will be used and the information exchange will be established among the dedicated systems of the member states, the statement of the press office of the EEU says.
