A new IT system (AES-RO) is being used for exports from Romania as of March 2024

A new information technology (IT) system (AES-RO) is being used for exports from Romania as of March 2024. There will also be a new interface between AES and the EMCS system for exports of goods under the excise duties suspension regime.

The AES-RO system replaces the ECS-RO (Export Control System) for export customs declarations and exit summary declarations, which previously required paper document submission. However, the old system can still be used for investigation procedures and for modifications/ invalidations of customs declarations in the "Exported" status.

This change is part of a broader package of customs IT system changes, of which the introduction of the export system – AES, and the transit system - NCTS5, which will be operational from May 2024, form a part.
