If there are grounds for reasonable suspicion that a postal article contains an explosive or other prohibited dangerous or

physically offensive.

7. Import restrictions
Since 1 October 1996, inward registered items containing valuables such as jewellery, precious metals, precious or semi-
precious stones, securities, coins or any form of negotiable financial instrument are no longer accepted. This measure applies to

Insured letter-post items and postal parcels are admitted only with the use of the insurance service for items containing
valuables that can be imported into Australia.
Postal items of any category (including registered, insured and EMS items) containing bullion or banknotes are not accepted
Following the foot-and-mouth outbreak in Europe early in 2001, goods imported to Australia containing biological material or
foodstuffs will be subject to a number of separate screening processes.

Packaging material

The postal administration of Australia would like to remind partner operators that, owing to strict quarantine requirements:
– fruit, vegetable, egg or meat cartons (new or used) must not be used as packaging for postal items;
– straw and other plant material must not be used as packaging material.
This restriction applies to items for delivery in Australia or sent in transit via the services of Australia Post to other destinations.
Avoiding the use of the cartons, boxes or packaging material mentioned above will help to ensure the prompt clearance and

Restriction on imports by post

Warning:
i Designation of products. The products included in the present list are often called by a global name, such as "game" or
"foodstuffs of animal origin". Some of these products are the subject of specific, and sometimes very extensive, lists which
can be consulted at customs offices. For instance, the list of textiles and textile articles dealt with in section XI is 27 pages
long, and the list of species covered by the Washington Convention (CITES) comprises several hundred species.
Moreover, certain categories of products referred to apply to a vast range of items which cannot be reduced to just a few
codes in the harmonized classification system. This applies to products coming under regulations concerning:
– the safety of the products;
– counterfeit goods;
– trademarks which lead people to believe the goods are of Belgian origin.
Moreover, no account has been taken of articles which are unlikely to be transported by post, such as refuse.
ii Product classifications. Mainly for the reasons given above, specific classification, according to the harmonized system, of
all the products referred to is impossible. Products with a global designation were therefore included in the classification in
which they are most frequently found.
iii Postal bans. These products have been included in the table, in accordance with the instructions received. The Post is
alone empowered to administer this matter and to draft any commentary for Part II.

2007 Edition 13
Belgium
1.4 Game
As a general rule, the release of dead game for use is authorized only during the period from the opening of the hunting season
for the game until the tenth day after it closes. Because hunting legislation comes under regional jurisdiction, hunting season
opening and closing dates may vary from one region to another.
In the Flemish region, outside this period, the importation of deep-frozen big game, as well as of deep-frozen hares, partridges
and pheasants, is nevertheless authorized, provided there is no reimportation of game originating from the Flemish region
which was previously exported.
In Wallonia, the importation of slaughtered game, whether deep-frozen or not, is authorized all year round, provided there
is no reimportation of game originating from Wallonia.

1.5. Species protected under the Washington Convention


In the EEC, certain endangered species of wild fauna and fauna are subject to application of the Washington Convention which
covers several hundred different species. These regulations provide in particular that, on importation of these animals
or plants, the required permit or certificate (annexes 3 and 4) must be presented to Customs.
These regulations do not apply to the importation of herbaria and other museum specimens which have been preserved, dried
or put in inclusion, and of live plants which are the subject of loans, donations and exchanges for non-commercial purposes
between scientists and scientific institutions; when circulating for the above-mentioned purposes between Convention
signatories, such specimens bear a label conforming to the model in annex 5 or a label similar to it when they originate from
Convention non-signatories.
These measures also apply to all articles obtained from protected species.

1.6 Birds, eggs and traps


Importation of the following is also prohibited:
i dead wild birds (even stuffed) native to the Benelux countries, their eggs (even blown eggs and egg shells), chicks and
feathers;
ii snares and devices for capturing or destroying birds, such as trapping nets and in particular, so-called "Japanese" nets.
Game birds and exotic and domestic birds do not come under this ban. Importation of Japanese nets is subject to the
authorization of the Royal Institute of Natural Sciences of Belgium.

2. Plants and plant products


2.1. Quality control
The importation of certain fruit and vegetable, live plant, cut-flower and hop products is subject to quality control. Consequently,
such imports are only permitted on production to Customs of a certificate of equivalence issued by the competent foreign
authority or by the National Agricultural and Horticultural Marketing Office (ONDAH) (annex 6).
These regulations do not apply to:
i the importation of such products in quantities not exceeding 3 kg net per species;
ii the importation of hops and lupulin in packs of 1 kg net maximum, nor to the importation of hop extract in packs of 300 g
net maximum, provided that the packaging of these products bears their designation, weight and end use and that they
satisfy one of the following conditions:
(a) that they are presented in small parcels intended for sale to individuals for their private use;
(b) that they are intended for scientific and technical experiments;
(c) that they are intended for trade fairs, under the exemption conditions applicable;
iii to products imported under cover of 136 F declarations;
iv to products imported under cover of 302 declarations, for the requirements of foreign armed forces stationed in Belgium.

2.2 Phytosanitary inspection


Numerous plants or plant products are subject to phytosanitary inspection. Their importation is subject to the consent of Ministry
of Agriculture officials.
The regulations are too complex to be summarized. The administrative instructions available at all customs offices should be
consulted.

14
Belgium
2.3 Indian berry
The importation of Indian berry in quantities of less that 50 kg is forbidden, except in the case of products sold and delivered
to a pharmacist and accompanied by a bill from the seller.
The above measures apply not only to Indian berry proper, but also to parts and powders of this fruit, as well as to products
containing them.

2.4 Seeds and seedlings


The importation of certain types of seeds and seedlings is subject to inspection by the National Agricultural and Horticultural
Marketing Office (ONDAH). In practice, importation is authorized only on presentation to Customs of an inspection certificate
showing that these products have been checked, admitted and fully identified by an ONDAH official.
The above-mentioned regulations are not applicable to seeds and seedlings intended for trials, scientific experiments or
selection work, provided that authorization from the Ministry of Agriculture is presented.

3. Pre-packed foodstuffs
This section applies to pre-packed foodstuffs only. "Pre-packed foodstuffs" is interpreted as meaning the article for sale,
intended for presentation to the end consumer as it is, comprising a foodstuff and the packaging in which it was made up prior
to being put on sale, whether this packaging covers it wholly or partly, but in such a way that the contents cannot be changed
without the packaging being opened or changed.
Such goods are generally classed in chapters 2 to 4, 7 to 11 or 15 to 22 of the combined system, but their classification does
not constitute a limiting criterion.
Compulsory label indications must be affixed to the external packaging.
These indications must state:
– the sales description;
– the minimum shelf-life or, in the case of extremely perishable foodstuffs, the "sell-by" date;
– the name or corporate name and address of the manufacturer or packer, or of a retailer based in one of the European
Community member States.

4. Precursors
These substances can play a part in the manufacture of certain drugs.
All imports must be the subject of appropriate documentation. In particular, commercial documents such as invoices, manifests,
customs documents, transport and other dispatch documents must contain sufficient information for definite identification of:
– the designation of the substance as given in Part I;
– the quantity and weight of the substance and, where this consists of a blend, the quantity and weight of the blend, as well
as the quantity and weight or the percentage of the substance(s) contained in the blend;
– the names and addresses of the exporter, importer, distributor and ultimate addressee.
Where operators label classified substances for importation with the type of product or its commercial name, the labelling must
show the name of these substances as given in Part I.

5. Textile products
Irrespective of their origin or provenance, the release for use of certain textile products is subject to the production of written
proof of their origin.
1 For certain goods, a certificate of origin (annex 7) must be issued in the country of origin of the goods.
2 For other textiles, Customs requires the presentation of a declaration by the exporter or supplier, affixed to the invoice or
some other commercial document relating to the textiles, stating that the goods originate from the country where the declaration
was prepared.
The list of codes designating these textile products is 27 pages long. It can be consulted at all Belgian customs offices.
Exceptions
Certificates or declarations of origin are not required:
i for goods accompanied by EUR 1 or EUR 2 documents, by a declaration of origin from the exporter on the invoice within
the framework of relations with EFTA countries, by Form A certificates of origin or APR documents, providing that a
preferential tariff has been granted;
ii for goods accompanied by A.TR 1 or A.TR 3 documents bearing in the "Comments" box the indication "Turkish origin"
authenticated by the signature and seal of the appropriate authority, providing that a preferential tariff has been granted;
iii for hand-made products accompanied by the certificate required for application of tariff quotas;

2007 Edition 15
Belgium
iv for craft products accompanied by a certificate, this exemption does not apply to imports from Brazil, Hong Kong and
Macao;
v for non-commercial imports for which, in accordance with the provisions governing preferential systems, none of the
documents referred to in i and ii is required;
vi for products exempt from import licence requirements;
vii for goods reimported wholly or partly free of charge under the "return of goods" system;
viii for goods reimported under the "passive improvement" system for compensatory products which are regarded as products
of Community origin.

6. Weapons
The importation of prohibited weapons is forbidden.
Defensive firearms and weapons of war may only be imported by the following individuals or legal entities:
i arms manufacturers, arms traders and gunsmiths, dealers and collectors who produce a licence (see annex 8) issued by
the Governor of the province where they exercise their activity or by the Minister of Justice;
ii as regards defensive firearms: persons holding a licence to possess a defensive firearm (see annex 9) issued by the Police
Superintendent (Commissaire de police) or by the Chief of Police (Commandant de gendarmerie) of the place where the
acquirer is domiciled or, where appropriate, of the province in which the acquirer is domiciled; if the acquirer is not
domiciled in Belgium, this licence must be issued by the Minister of Justice or his delegate. Holders of hunting permits or
equivalent documents are allowed to import semi-automatic rifles designed for hunting and featuring a fixed, non-
transformable magazine or cartridge chamber with a capacity of two cartridges at most;
iii as regards weapons of war: persons holding a licence to possess such a weapon (see annex 9), issued by the Governor of
the province or by the Minister of Justice or his delegate, if the persons are not domiciled in Belgium; such a licence may
not have been issued more than three months before importation;
iv persons previously authorized to possess a weapon in Belgium and who on their return to Belgium produce a Belgian
firearm registration certificate permitting the possession of such a weapon, or an authorization conforming to the model
annexed to these instructions; in the latter case, the lower part of the authorization shall have been duly completed and
signed by the vendor or grantor, or by the customs officials who previously allowed the importation of the weapon.
The above provisions also apply to the importation of spare parts subject to official testing by the Weapons Testing Authority in
Liege, as well as to accessories which, mounted on firearms, modify the category to which the weapon is supposed to belong.
The following are considered as spare parts subject to official testing:
– the frame;
– the barrel;
– revolver cylinders;
– pistol breeches and slides;
– safety catches and locks;
– the hammer.
The following are considered as accessories which, when mounted on a firearm, change the category to which the weapon
is assigned:
– sliding, folding or easily removable grips (defensive weapons);
– hand-held grips instead of shoulder butts (defensive weapons);
– combination shot-guns less than 60 cm long (defensive weapons);
– parts for rifles designed to make a weapon suitable for firing pistol or revolver ammunition (defensive weapons);
– mechanisms which convert an automatic weapon into a semi-automatic weapon (defensive weapons);
– mechanisms which convert a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic weapon (weapons of war);
– parts making it possible to fire military-calibre cartridges (weapons of war);
– silencers or mufflers (prohibited weapons).
Importation of the following is prohibited:
i armour-piercing, incendiary or explosive ammunition;
ii dumdum ammunition for pistols and revolvers;
iii projectiles for such ammunition.

16
Belgium
7. Toys
Before importation, importers or distributors must have the following printed on their toys:
– either their name; or the name of their company; or their brand name;
– their address in the EC;
– the mark "EC".
However, for small toys or toys made up of small components, this information may be put on the packaging, a label or notice.
In such cases, the importer has an obligation to draw consumers' attention to the expediency of keeping this information.
Moreover, this information may be shortened, provided the abbreviation permits identification of the importer. It must be affixed
visibly, legibly and indelibly.

2007 Edition 17
Belgium
Part III:
Special provisions, Customs and other

1. Drawing up of customs declarations


To avoid a postal item being considered as irregular or being the subject of a violation, the green CN 22 label must be stuck
onto the item, or a CN 23 customs declaration must accompany the item (in this case, the upper part of the CN 22 label must
be stuck onto the item).
The postal parcel must be accompanied by a CN 23 customs declaration (the upper part of the CN 22 label must be stuck onto
the item).
These forms must be completed as accurately as possible to enable the Post (postal item) or the Belgian Railways (postal
parcel) to carry out customs formalities as quickly and precisely as possible, without consulting the addressee.

2. Need to insert invoices


For likewise expediting customs clearance, it is advisable to attach a copy of the invoice to the postal item or postal parcel
(eg. by sticking it onto the item/parcel).
A copy of the invoice must be attached to the customs declaration. If it is not attached to the item or parcel, the Post or the
Belgian Railways has to approach the addressee to obtain it.
It should be noted that a copy of the invoice is not required in the following cases:
– if the goods imported were not for sale; in this case, the person on whose behalf or instructions they are being cleared
through Customs shall attach to the declaration of entry for personal use an attestation to that effect, stating at the same
time on what grounds he has the goods at his disposal;
– if it transpires from the CN 23 customs declaration or the CN 22 label that the value of each batch of goods to be declared
separately does not exceed 250 EUR;
– items addressed to private persons, provided that the imported goods involved are not of a commercial nature and that the
value indicated on the CN 23 customs declaration or the CN 22 label does not exceed 375 EUR;
– when, for goods shown on one and the same invoice, part of which were declared previously to the same office, the
declaration mentions the date and number of the first declaration for personal use.
In the cases referred to under the second and third dashes above, the customs value and/or the basis for VAT charges are
established on the basis of the value mentioned on the CN 23 customs declaration or the CN 22 label.
Where Customs finds that the value given on these documents is not acceptable and that the above limits have been
exceeded, an invoice or a copy thereof must be submitted.

3. Need to attest to the origin of goods


3.1 Certificates of non-preferential origin
For the application of certain tariff measures (suspension, quota, anti-dumping laws, etc) or the application of other economic
measures, provision is made for postal items to be accompanied (or a posteriori) by certificates of non-preferential origin in
accordance with articles 22 to 26 of the Community Customs Code.

3.2 Certificates of preferential origin


Favourable tariff treatment for goods contained in postal items is subject to the production of an EUR 2 form or of a declaration
of origin on invoice, in accordance with the specific provisions laid down in each preferential agreement.
Moreover, each agreement provides for the value ceilings for which these documents (EUR 2 form and declaration of origin)
may be signed by the exporter, without involvement of outward Customs.
It should be noted that within the framework of the Generalized Preferential System (SPG), Community regulations (article 27 of
the Community Customs Code) provide for the use of the APR form and for a value ceiling.
Above these value ceilings, the preferential agreements and Community regulations provide for the use of EUR 1 A.TR 1,
FORM A goods circulation certificates and, for certain "licensed exporters", for the use of a declaration of origin on invoice, as
appropriate.

3.3 Miscellaneous
Moreover, numerous legal and administrative procedures regulate matters in connection with import licences, exemptions,
customs value, excise duties, VAT and offences.
These matters are the subject of administrative instructions which can be consulted at all Belgian customs offices.

7. Printed Matter

Imports must adhere to Canada Border Services Agency policy on the classification of obscene material. For the purposes
of this policy, any publication a dominant characteristic of which is the undue exploitation of sex, or of sex and any one or more
of the following subjects, namely, crime, horror, cruelty and violence, shall be deemed to be obscene.
http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/E/pub/cm/d9-1-1/d9-1-1-e.html

Imports must adhere to Canada Border Services Agency policy on the import of copyrighted books. Copies made out of

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/E/pub/cm/d9-1-2/d9-1-2-e.html

8. Diamonds

Imports must adhere to the import controls regulated by the Kimberley Process. The purpose of the Kimberley Process is

Certificates (KPCs) and to be transported in tamper-resistant containers.

9. Firearms

Please contact the Canadian Firearms Centre http://www.cfc-cafc.gc.ca/ before sending any goods listed in Chapter 93.

Canada Post has noted that an increasing number of inert and replica munitions such as inert grenades are being sent through
the postal network. When such items are discovered by the Canada Border Services Agency (the Canadian customs authority),
Canada Post's offices of exchange must be evacuated while experts are called in to determine whether or not they pose a
danger to customs and postal personnel. This security procedure impedes Canada Post's ability to deliver other postal items
according to established delivery standards.
In view of the above, Canada has introduced regulatory changes – effective 4 October 2006 – prohibiting the transmission
of such items via the postal network. Accordingly, Canada requests that postal administrations take note of this new regulatory
prohibition and take the necessary measures not to induct such items into the post, when bound for Canada.
For clarity, the prohibition applies to:
Replica or inert munitions, as well as other devices that simulate explosive devices or munitions, including replica or inert
grenades or other simulated military munitions, whether or not such items are for display purposes.
After the effective date, such items found in the mail will be destroyed in accordance with the regulations.

10. Intoxicating beverages

Intoxicating beverages are prohibited unless:


a) They are addressed to a Provincial Liquor Control Board or other Commission or body approved by the Provincial Liquor
Control Board, a registered manufacturer or distributor of such beverages; and
b) Are not prohibited as flammable materials due to the alcoholic content.

Special provisions, Customs and other

Drawing up of Customs declarations

As a result of the adoption of Canadian Federal Legislation (Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing
Act), all Canadian or foreign currency and monetary instruments (10,000 CAD (Canadian dollars) or more) entering or exiting
Canada through the mail must be reported to the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA).
From 6 January 2003, customers sending currency or monetary instruments into Canada or out of the country valued at 10,000
CAD or more, will be required to complete a Cross-Border Currency or Monetary Instruments Report – form E667.
For imports into Canada, a Customs Declaration Form must be completed and attached to the item and form E667 placed
inside the item. Unreported currency and monetary instruments are subject to seizure by the CCRA and customers may face
penalties and possible forfeiture.
Monetary instruments are securities such as stocks, bonds, debentures and treasury bills, and negotiable instruments such as
bank drafts, cheques, promissory notes, traveller cheques and money orders when they are in bearer or in such other form as
title to them passes on delivery. They do not include negotiable instruments that bear restrictive endorsements (such as a
cheque stamped for deposit only) or made to a named person and not endorsed.
Additional information on currency reporting and forms can be obtained on the CCRA website: www.cra-arc.gc.ca/menu-e.html

Telephone inquiries can be addressed to CCRA at (+1 204) 983 3500 or (+1 506) 636 5064.

Part III:
Special provisions, Customs and other

1. Drawing up of customs declarations


Customs declarations must contain all the information necessary for the application of duties, taxes and control measures
on both importation and exportation. They must state, specifically:
– the name and address of the consignors and consignees;
– the country of origin and of destination of the item;
– a description of the goods contained and the harmonized system code index;
– the gross and net weight;
– the value of the item;
– the signature of the sender or his agent.

2. Need to insert invoices


In order to facilitate customs operations and calculation of the various duties, the insertion of original invoices as annexes
to the declaration is compulsory.
For all items containing free sample articles for commercial presentation, it is obligatory to insert a Gratis invoice.
If no invoice is produced, the value is determined by the customs authorities.

3. Need to attest to the origin of the goods


Certificates of origin are generally not required.
However, it is good to provide one and in some cases the customs authorities may require it too.

4. Miscellaneous customs provisions


Goods imported by post not exceeding US $50 in value, provided such goods are for the importer's own domestic use and are
not intended for sale or business or for use in trade, are free of import duty and taxes. This duty free is concerned only items
sent by private person to private person.
Postal items sent as humanitarian aid are free from all duties and taxes, only if addressed to duly authorized organizations
(eg Red Cross of Croatia, etc.).

5. Provisions on infringements
It is a matter of principle that all postal items imported into Croatia must be declared to Customs where they are opened,
examined and closed again.
Consequently, a false declaration by the sender is not necessarily a reason for seizure of the items by the Customs.
In exceptional cases, when undeclared articles have been hidden with manifest intention of deceiving the official examination,
the customs authorities are empowered to seize such articles, in which case neither the sender nor the addressee has any right
to any compensation whatsoever.
