Federal law to establish Federal Customs Authority approved

(Abu Dhabi) – The Federal National Council (FNC) approved a federal draft law establishing the Federal Customs Authority after amending a number of articles and clauses, during its 14th meeting of the fourth ordinary session of 15th legislative chapter, held at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, and chaired by the FNC Speaker Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr.
The FNC attached a recommendation with the bill, calling for issuance of the GCC unified customs system, which can be applied in the UAE in compliance with the Article 27 of the Constitution of the State.
It stressed the importance of the bill, which authorises the Federal Customs Authority to draft the customs policy, prepare uniform legislation to regulate the work of customs control, apply the best practices and standards in the field of customs, combat customs smuggling and fraud, and ensure implementation by the competent authorities of these measures in accordance with the provisions of this law and regulations in this respect.
The FNC stressed the importance of reorganising the Federal Customs Authority to enjoy a legal status, independent budget and legal capacity necessary to discharge all transactions to ensure the achievement of its objectives. The bill will be submitted to the Cabinet. It annuls the federal draft law No. 1 for year 2003 on the establishment of the Federal Customs Authority, and its amendments. The new bill also repeals any provision that is contrary to or is inconsistent with the provisions of this law.
