As reported, about a month ago the Deputy from «Blok Petro Poroshenko» Nina Southerner , along with a group of MPs registered a draft law «On the National customs service of Ukraine», which envisages allocation of customs in an independent structure. As noted in the explanatory Memorandum, the reformation of fiscal bodies required by the provisions of the Strategy «Ukraine — 2020», approved by decree of the President and the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU.
Deputies believe that the formation of the structure of the office due to the customs valuation component as secondary, and that due to the actual institutional and structural «takeover» of the customs component of the State fiscal service, customs lost its positive development and growth. The authors propose to make the National customs service of Ukraine the Central Executive body which will implement the state customs policy.
