TIR System to continue in Russia until November 30th, 2014
The Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS RF) officially notified the Russian TIR guaranteeing association, ASMAP, about the extension of its agreement until November 30th 2014.
However, considering this very late announcement from the FCS RF and the lack of available details, practical problems are still likely to take place at border-crossing points in Russia over the next few days.
The IRU will provide further information as soon as it is officially available, and will keep working in close cooperation with Russian Customs and authorities to find a solution suitable to all parties.
