A customs document used during transport between two customs offices, providing visibility of the quantity and value of the goods. If immediately after the entry of customs goods into the European Union, the goods are not dutiable at the first customs office (border customs office, airport, seaport), then the T1 document accompanies the goods until final customs clearance at the place of receipt. In Europe, a T1 document is valid for a maximum of eight days. During this time, the goods must be delivered to customs and dutiable.
In order to prepare a T1 document, you must have the following documents:
Document on the goods (commercial invoice, bill of lading - containing information on quantity, value)
Documents proving the origin of the goods (certificate of origin or EUR.1
Documents proving transportation (bill of lading, documents on transportation, e.g., by sea)
Documents from customs clearance (customs declaration)
Documents relating to technical specifications (declaration of conformity, certificates, approvals)
