Inward processing refers to goods imported into the EU that will be processed somehow and then shipped outside the EU again. An example of this is a product imported for repairs or maintenance and then exported again to be returned to its owner.
Dutch Customs is implementing a new procedure. With this new procedure, it is no longer possible to make an import declaration before the goods have been unloaded. The new import procedure is called Container Vrijgave Bericht (CVB), which translates into Container Release Message.
