According to the EAEU Customs Code, the customs procedure of a free customs zone is a customs procedure applied to foreign goods and goods of the EAEU, according to which such goods are placed and used within the territory of a free economic zone (FEZ) or part of it without paying customs duties and taxes , special, anti-dumping, countervailing duties, subject to the conditions for placing goods under this customs procedure and their use in accordance with such customs procedure. The possibility of applying the customs procedure of the free customs zone is one of the most effective preferences for residents of the FEZ.

The EAEU law provides for the simplification of the procedure for applying the customs procedure of the free customs zone. In particular, a simplified procedure is provided for the completion of the customs procedure of the free customs zone in relation to goods placed under the customs procedure of the free customs zone and (or) goods made from such goods and, accordingly, the termination of such goods being under customs control. The simplification applies, inter alia, to the expenditure (consumption) of goods during the creation, operation (maintenance), repair and reconstruction of real estate objects on the territory of the FEZ, operation and (or) maintenance of equipment, machines, units, expenditure for scientific purposes.

One of the important provisions of the draft law is to expand the possibility of exporting goods placed under the customs procedure of the free customs zone from the territory of the FEZ without completing the customs procedure of the free customs zone. This simplification applies, among other things, to cases of exporting goods from the territory of the FEZ to the rest of the territory of the Russian Federation for their own production and technological needs, as well as for processing (processing) operations, manufacturing of goods, including assembly, installation, fitting. The bill also defines the formation of a mechanism for completing the customs procedure of a free customs zone for waste received in the territory of the Kaliningrad region for their export to the rest of the customs territory of the EAEU.

"The adoption of the bill will help enhance the attractiveness of the FEZ for potential investors, develop existing and create new industries, ensure sustainable socio-economic development of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation," says the conclusion of the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy, Industry, Innovative Development and Entrepreneurship.
