  • You have to submit the declaration to Norwegian Customs when you arrive in Norway to declare your goods. If you are unable to be present during customs processing, you must ensure that whoever is transporting the goods for you can present the declaration that is signed by you. The goods will not be processed until the declaration has been submitted and correctly filled in.
  • The Union Customs Code (UCC) was adopted in 2013 and its substantive provisions apply from May 1, 2016.  It replaces the Community Customs Code (CCC).  In addition to the UCC, the European Commission has published delegated and implementing regulations on the actual procedural changes.  These are included in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/341 and the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447.

Why Should Norway Import Printers and Ink?

  1. Availability - The local industry has limited capacity and some clients in Norway require printers and ink promptly.
  2. High Product Cost - Given the domestic competition in Norway, printers and the continuous ink supply are more expensive to buy domestically than on the world market.
  3. Product Quality - While most international suppliers have a good brand reputation and quality, some smaller domestic manufacturers in Norway can have variant product quality.
