Starting from today, March 1, USPS will implement a new rule requiring you to accurately describe the contents of packages you send to the European Union. Otherwise, your packages could be rejected or even destroyed.
Such detailed descriptions must be filled out on customs forms, and the new rule follows European Union customs regulations, the USPS said in a statement.
The new rule indicates that each item in your package must be mentioned on the customs declaration form.
However, it should not be done in a general way, but should be a specific description. For example, you can’t just put “electronics”, but you have to explain what specific device is sending: computer, mobile phone, televisionetc.
USPS warns that if you do not follow these requirements, your shipments could be at risk.
And it is that not only could they suffer delays in their delivery, but they could also be discarded and even destroyed.
People who have businesses where they send products to the European Union could also suffer significant economic losses if they do not fill out the form correctly.since the transaction could not be carried out and they would have to make a refund.
