Modification of Operations from Free Trade Zones to the Rest of the World (External Markets) – Article 523 of Resolution 046 of 2019

Recently, Resolution 000097 was issued, modifying Article 523 of Resolution 046 of 2019, which relates to the requirements for operations from Free Trade Zones (FTZ) destined for the rest of the world. This modification takes effect immediately and focuses on the obligation to submit the Shipping Authorization Request (SAE) for the exit of goods from the FTZ to external markets.

Changes and Clarifications from the Draft Resolution:

Submission of the Shipping Authorization Request (SAE):

  • The SAE can be submitted directly by the exporter or through a customs agency.

Exporters:

  • The exporter can be the industrial or commercial user of the FTZ, the exhibitor user in temporary free zones, or a third-party exporter. It is recommended that the FTZ user updates their Tax Identification Number (RUT) with code 22 as an exporter and registers in the export module of the Single Window for Foreign Trade (VUCE).

Export Modalities:

  • The export modality corresponding to the operation can be used, ensuring that the process aligns with the specific requirements of different export scenarios.

Supporting Documentation:

  • In addition to the SAE, the exit of goods must be supported by:
    • The Merchandise Form authorized by the operator user.
    • The transfer sheet.
    • The Customs Transit Declaration, where applicable.

Inspection of Goods:

  • Goods can be inspected within the FTZ upon request by the FTZ user or the customs agency through the computerized system, facilitating compliance checks within the secure FTZ environment before shipment.

Sealing of Goods:

  • Goods must be sealed within the FTZ facilities before their exit, ensuring the security and integrity of the cargo during transit.

Return of Goods:

  • If goods exit the FTZ but are not successfully shipped, they can return to the FTZ upon prior authorization. This provision ensures flexibility and addresses potential logistical issues without penalizing or sanctioning the exporter, provided the procedure and authorization are followed in a timely manner.

The modification of Article 523 of Resolution 046 of 2019 clarifies the requirements for operations from FTZs to the rest of the world, highlighting the obligation to submit the Shipping Authorization Request and the Merchandise Movement Form in the FTZ, which must be authorized by the operator or administrative user.

In this regard, the exit of goods from the FTZ to the place of shipment must be supported by the Shipping Authorization Request in addition to the supporting documents accompanying this process, such as the transfer sheet and the Merchandise Movement Form authorized by the administrative user.
