As Russian customs have not yet abandoned its plan to introduce new measures on 14 September requesting additional guarantees for goods moved by road under cover of the TIR procedure, transport operators are strongly advised to prepare themselves for that scenario.

The measures were initially scheduled for 14 August but they were postponed following reactions from European Customs Commissioner Algirdas Šemeta and EU Member States' representatives. European Commission experts continue discussions with their Russian counterparts in order to find a solution. The TIR Executive Board meeting in Geneva on 27 August has asked Russia to abandon the measure or, at least, to postpone it until the end of the year.
