The Eurasian Economic Commission (the "EEC") issued a draft decision on July 16, 2013 requiring electronic pre-notification for all goods shipped into the Customs Union (CU) by rail. The draft decision provides for entry into force of the measure on October 1, 2014; however, the EEC has already initiated public discussion on the measure.
—Russian authorities introduced voluntary electronic pre-notification for all types of transport in 2008 (Order of the Federal Customs Service of Russia No. 52 "On Implementation of the Information Technology of Filing Information in the Electronic Form to the Customs on Purposes of Customs Clearance Including Through Internet" dated January 24, 2008).
