Update regards to the 11th package of sanction against Russia

Dear Suppliers,

In regards to the European Union´s 11th package of sanctions towards Russia, the EU has tightened the restrictions on imports of iron and steel goods by requiring importers of iron and steel goods, that have been processed in a third country, to prove that the material does not come from Russia.

Starting from September 30th, 2023  if you are an importer of iron and steel into the EU, you will be required to provide proof that the listed goods were not manufactured using Russian primary materials.

The country of origin of the primary goods of iron and steel must be proven, at any time, to any control authorities (including the respective country´s Customs) according to the attached FAQ on the implementation of Council Regulation (EU) No. 833/2014 and Council Regulation (EU) No. 269/2014, which the EU Commission updated on July 18th, 2023.

The latest version of the FAQ can be found at the following link:  Frequently asked questions – Sanctions against Russia (europa.eu).

We are hoping for your co-operation going forward when this will be followed up by Scania Purchasing. 

Kind regards,

Scania Purchasing and Logistics, 2023-08-25
