The Goods Division of the Norwegian Customs Service has implemented frameworks and conditions for businesses wanting to transport VOEC shipments to Norway and report them electronically. The Customs Service has a number of requirements that must be fulfilled by the business in order to comply with the notification and presentation obligation by virtue of the Customs Act, Section 3-1-17.
The most important conditions are:
- Approval through the Maskinporten developed and administered by the Norwegian Digitalisation Agency.
- The business must have a customs warehouse license (A) or agreement with a customs warehouse keeper.
- The business must have TVINN access or an agreement with an agent with TVINN access.
More information on the VOEC scheme can be found here (link) on our website and on the Norwegian Tax Administration website.
Detailed information on the frameworks and conditions with a link to the application form can be found here (link).
It is already possible to submit an application, but technical testing of the solution will not start until mid-August 2021.
