Abstract: The year 2021 saw the accomplishment of reforms within the scope of the Comprehensive Program for Development of the RF Federal Customs Service till 2020 and the Strategy of the Development of the RF Customs Service till 2020. The main transformations are related primarily with the introduction of modern information technologies in customs procedures making it feasible to switch over to automatic registration of customs declarations and automatic (with no involvement of customs officials) release of goods. Vladimir Bulavin, Head of the RF Federal Customs Service declared that in 2021 25% of customs declaration were issued in an automatic mode when importing goods and nearly 43% when exporting. “After carrying out customs reforms, the customs authorities have achieved an optimal operating mode: at present 68%, 80% and 98% of customs declarations are released within an hour, 4 hours and a day, respectively, while only 2% of declarations are sent for checking. From January through November 2021, customs authorities registered in an automatic mode over 4.1 mn declarations and released automatically over 1.34 mn declarations.†2 Notably, an increase in the share of consignments with an automatic release of goods takes place amid a 37% pickup in foreign trade as compared with 2020.
