Further to the information dated 23 September, the IRU was informed that the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS RF) has extended the scope of its illegal restriction on TIR guarantees to the Privolzhsky Customs Region, further defying the UN’s and the international community’s conclusion that this action is in breach of the TIR Convention and international law.

These unilateral restrictions will notably impact the Bashkortostan, Nizhegorodskaya, Orenburg, Perm, Samara, Saratov, Tatarstan, Ulyanovsk and Privolzhskaya Operativnaya regional customs offices. Although the exact scope of these FCS RF measures is not yet known, Customs offices concerned are likely to illegally refuse to proceed with TIR operations in the absence of additional guarantees.

Overall, the FCS RF’s illegal restriction on TIR guarantees now applies to Siberian, Far East, Ural and Privolzhsky Customs Regions. The IRU therefore strongly advises all transport operators driving to, from and across Russia, to use the IRU Recommendations for TIR Carnet Holders, in case TIR Carnets are illegally refused by some Russian Customs officers.

The IRU hotline is available to respond to enquiries.
