ETN Czech Republic, the newest National branch of EurTradeNet
The positive experience of ETN-Italia activated in 2015, and the brave entrepreneurship of CNS a.s. as fully committed Czech ETN member, allowed this January 2017 the inception of the second National branch of EurTradeNet: ETN Czech Republic. As a first step, two more customs service providers adhered, Celní Software and NZ Servis. Their differential know-how and complementary expertise reinforces the professional impulse of CNS.
The European Authorities fix the general directives and new rules to conduct eCustoms EU-wide, from May 2016 under the new Union Customs Code. But all procedures are still locally implemented and operated; thus the closer liaison with the National bodies in all EU countries, the better preparation to implement and effectively deploy the supporting IT&Customs systems.
EurTradeNet-ETN keeps getting armed as International Association, leading global actuations for the benefit of its European membership, while also promoting and supporting reliable National interventions.
Along the years, EurTradeNet has fixed professional collaborations with the few existing National groupings aligned with its neutral non-profit purposes: AFSS in the UK and CRSNP in Belgium are ETN Affiliates. In other important trade regions, EurTradeNet further operates through ETN National branches.
ETN-Italia was the first to carry on as a National branch of EurTradeNet, globally co-ordinated but locally independent. And right initiated year 2017, ETN Czech Republic follows the Italian path.
Sharing common mission and goals, orchestrated under a global umbrella but acting as any other Trade Association locally based, the ETN National branches actively listen to the Regulatory Bodies in the country, jointly discuss new directives before coming into force, and honestly suggest realistic approaches to assure streamlined eCustoms operations here and there.
Think European Perform Local is not right an ETN motto; it’s our EurTradeNet reality.
