Accession to the EU is the strategic goal of Serbia which entails acceptance of the EU standards in the fields of protection of internal market’s financial interests and efficiant external boarder control. One of the preconditions for EU accession is implementation of NCTS for common transit and in future for Community transit. In May 2009 Serbia was granted the status of informal observer in the Joint Committee of Convention on a Common Transit Procedure.
The objective of Serbia is to simplify the border crossing formalities in transit and increase the security of transit procedure. With the shift of EU boarders to Balkan countries the impact on the capacities of border crossings and customs services fell on the countries with the status of EU candidate or potential candidate.
In the fields of trade facilitation, improvement of risk management procedures, controls and tools, aligned with EU Risk Framework, are required and presumed.
In addition for the trade facilitation, implementation of business processes and strengthening capacities to issue/use/maintain AEO certificates for simplified procedures are required.
The use of electronic transit declaration and electronic communication between traders - customs and customs – customs will lead to improvement of business processes, cost reduction on traders site and implementation of simplified procedures will have a positive impact on business community;
Increase use of simplified procedures in transit will reduce the traders costs and will bring more efficiency to core customs business;

Controlled electronic environment and use of Risk Management System will cause higher work efficiency of customs authorities and reduction of frauds and corruption;
