On 23 April 2013, the negotiators of the European Parliament (EP) and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the EU’s Union Customs Code (UCC). The compromise must still be endorsed by the EP’s Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) Committee (and subsequently at the Plenary Session) and by the Council’s political level before the UCC can be adopted and published.
