For equipment, spare parts and some other goods the following information is needed: cargo’s description, application area (specific use) specifications, etc. – to prove it’s not dual-use cargo.
For specific goods Customs may require certain explanatory materials: technical description, booklets, samples, drawings, etc.
Export customs clearance
Cargo can be export cleared at the exporters premises providing they have a customs post within their facility (some large Russian producers have this).
If the exporter does not have a customs post on site it is usual to export clear the cargo at the nearest customs control zone.
Export cargo can also be cleared at the Russian port of exit.
A logistics company cannot act as the exporter – only an actual exporter who is a Russian legal entity or a customs broker acting on their behalf is allowed to declare exports.
