Customs must publish certain information about the decision-making process 8. Each member endeavours to make available to the public any information about preliminary decisions that it considers to be of considerable interest to other interested parties, taking into account the need to protect confidential business information. In accordance with Standard 9.8 of the revised Kyoto Convention (RKC) and the WCO`s recommendation for mandatory requests for information on preliminary decisions, this should be done in writing. Customs is also required to make the preliminary decision in writing, including the granting of an appeal. The written application must include a complete description of the goods, brochures or templates to allow for proper classification. Ideally, Customs should set up a specialized unit at the regional or central level to ensure the uniform and consistent operation of the pre-regulation system. In a recent study on the impact of trade facilitation on trade costs, the OECD found that the system of preliminary decisions was the most effective measure to facilitate trade unification. The OECD has identified 12 trade facilitation indicators that, overall, could potentially lead to a total 10% reduction in trade costs. For preliminary decisions alone, the reduction in the impact on business costs was estimated at about 5.4%. 6 When an official finds, in the course of reviewing a request for a preliminary decision, that the information contained in the application is not sufficient to make a decision, the official may ask the applicant for additional information and set a period of at least thirty days for the transmission of the information. The main objective of pre-regulatory programmes is to make decisions on the classification, origin and valuation of goods before they are imported or exported, in order to ensure the safety and predictability of international trade and to assist traders in making informed business decisions based on legally binding decisions. The decision is binding on customs and remains valid for a reasonable period of time; (b) the period by which it is taken as a prejudicial; and one.

Each member makes a preliminary decision to the applicant who has submitted a written application containing all the necessary information within a reasonable time and time. When a member rejects a preliminary decision, he immediately informs the applicant in writing, specifying the relevant facts and the basis of his decision. 2. An official may refuse or defer the granting of a preliminary decision if the applicant does not provide the additional information requested in accordance with Section 6 within the specified time frame. The effect of the judgment is limited to the parties before the Authority and to the transaction for which the decision is made. The reason is that the judgment was rendered on a number of facts before the Authority and cannot be a general application. b) In addition to the preliminary decisions referred to in point a), councillors are invited to make preliminary decisions on the following subjects: 12 A preliminary decision remains in force and is respected by the Minister if 9 a preliminary decision is made in writing in the same language as the language of the application for prejudicial removal and is given to the applicant. (iv) any additional matter for which a member deems it appropriate to issue a preliminary decision. The right, at the request of an operator, makes a written decision on the tariff classification or origin of its products (or other materials covered in paragraph 9 point b) (a) (a) (a) a) a( a) a preliminary decision that a member makes to the applicant before importing a product covered by the application, which determines the treatment that the member of the commodity processed at the time of importation : 2.
