All applicable legislation on customs is almost completely regulated on European level.  Member States are responsible for the collection of customs duties on behalf of the European Union.  Enterprises that are active within the import and export of goods inside and outside the European customs union are subject to important customs obligations whose non-compliance is severely sanctioned, often including criminal consequences.
