IRU TIR Electronic Pre-Declaration (TIR-EPD) System
The IRU TIR-EPD application allows TIR Carnet Holders to comply, free of charge, with the EU NCTS/TIR and EORI Regulations which entered into force in 2009, with the EU security requirements, which entered into force on 1 January 2011, as well as with Decision No. 899 of the Commission of the Customs Union on mandatory submission of preliminary informaiton on transported goods by submitting TIR Electronic Pre-Declarations to Customs offices free-of-charge and in a simple way. The IRU TIR-EPD is also fully compliant with the World Customs Organization’s Framework of Standards.
TIR-EPD is a web-based application which also enables each fleet operator to maintain full confidentiality of his commercial data by avoiding recourse to third parties while considerably reducing the time needed for Customs procedures at borders.
The IRU TIR-EPD is currently implemented by the Customs authorities of 27 countries and available in many national languages.
More information about the TIR-EPD technology is available in English, French, Chinese and Russian.
