These regulations, which come into force on 24 June 2014, are made under the Customs and Excise Act 1996 (the Act). They amend and update the Customs and Excise Regulations 1996 to reflect amendments made to the Act by the Customs and Excise (Border Processing—Trade Single Window and Duties) Amendment Act 2014, most of which also comes into force on 24 June 2014. These regulations—
revoke provisions in respect of matters to be provided for instead by way of chief executive rules made under section 288 of the Act:
prescribe deadlines for, and otherwise recognise, inward cargo reports, outward cargo reports, and transhipment requests:
replace an outdated reference to Schedule 3 of the Act with a reference to the Excise and Excise-equivalent Duties Table (as defined by section 76A of the Act):
replace references to the Customs computerised entry processing system with references to the Joint Border Management System or JBMS (as defined in section 131A of the Act).
