Future-proof your imports with a CBAM-expert

Stay compliant with European customs regulations


Companies that import goods into the EU have a reporting obligation on the direct and indirect CO2 emissions that occur in the production of goods (since October 2023).

The Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and related reporting obligation apply to specific goods categories. Reach out to our experienced European customs experts so they can advice you on the impact for your business, help you navigate these complicated changes and meet compliance requirements.   

Objective and concrete advice tailored to your needs
A broad spectrum of customs knowledge backed by 20+ years of experience
European network of customs and CBAM experts
The Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) is an instrument set-up to apply the same carbon costs to imported goods as would be incurred by installations operating in the European Union (EU)

Four reasons why you should prepare for CBAM now

Don't wait and risk non-compliance of your supply chain
  1. Importers are yet obligated to report on a quarterly basis their CBAM-related products and emissions (CBAM transition period: October 2023 to 2025).
  2. Importers will be obligated to purchase CBAM-certificates. These will be sold by Member States through a common central platform to authorized CBAM declarants (CBAM in effect: from January 2026)
  3. CBAM certificates can only be purchased through CBAM-authorised declarants; having a Customs and CBAM partner will save you valuable time and hassle in getting the right CBAM-authorisation.
  4. CBAM is part of EU's Green Deal and the ambition to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. To realise structural reductions, regulations such as CBAM are here to stay. Not taking action results in non-compliance.   


Which products fall under the CBAM-reporting requirements?

Fertilisers, Cement, Iron and steel, Aluminum, Electricity, Hydrogen

How to prepare for CBAM

The EU is moving towards a more granular system to track carbon emissions and carbon intensity of imported goods. In the current transitional phase of CBAM (2023-2025) the EU obligates importers to report on additional data so they can establish the estimated direct and indirect emissions.  

Thus, importers have an additional reporting obligation. On a quarterly basis reports need to be prepared and submitted in a standardised format. Examples of information that needs to be submitted are quantity and type of goods, country of origin, installation where goods were produced, production routes used etc. 

After establishing a reliable tracking mechanism, importers will be obligated to purchase CBAM certificates in 2026. CBAM regulation assigns a carbon price to imported goods which is equivalent to the carbon price of domestic production in the EU. In this way imported goods are not undermining the EU's climate objectives.  

At Customs Support we are specialised in helping our clients meet CBAM-regulation. This means we help in preparing CBAM reports and submit the reports to the relevant institutions. Because of our digital connections, we are able to handle large data quantities effectively. This will save you valuable time, capacity and the hassle of doing it yourself. Furthermore, letting an expert submit the reports for you minimises the risk of non-compliance with EU regulation. Because of our CBAM specialisation, we provide guidance and updates on the latest developments.
