(c) Examinations of goods at a place other than the customs office
36. Standard

At the request of the declarant, and for reasons deemed valid by the customs authorities, the latter shall, so far as possible, allow goods declared for home use to be examined at a place other than the customs office where the goods declaration was lodged; the expenses entailed by such examination may be charged to the declarant.

2.The cases in which arrangements may be made for examination at a place other than the customs office where the goods declaration was lodged include:
  • goods which cannot readily be examined until unloaded at destination (for example: wheat, oil or ores imported by ship or barge; bulk consignments of parts in containers; furniture and household effects imported on transfer of residence),

  • goods which cannot be examined without appropriate equipment (such as a dark room or a cold chamber),

  • goods which cannot usefully be required to be produced at a customs office (for example, products obtained from the working of border lands or quarries near the frontier, imported by the shortest route).
