Stricter customs controls in Italy

The risk parameters in Italy for the import and export of personal belongings, furniture and used household goods (goods classed under HS code 990500) have recently been tightened up.

What does this mean for you?

Extra checks and possible delays

A recent report published by the General Management of the Customs and Monopolies Agency emphasizes that art smuggling has been on the rise for some time now in Italy.

This led to the decision to tighten up several security parameters, particularly for the import and export of used household goods.

The increase in illicit art smuggling means that customs authorities will be carrying out more far-reaching inspections and controls. These stricter procedures are expected to remain in place until the problem is under control.

Extra charges and delays can be a direct result of this and we recommend that our partners update their customers on the situation in Italy.

FIDI FAIM re-certification huge success

Three more Gosselin offices have recently re-obtained their FIDI certification. FIDI is an organization whose membership is restricted to moving companies that have successfully completed a certification procedure. This results in a network of FIDI-certified agents. Seeing as how all three offices passed their recertification audit successfully, we asked branch managers Laurent (Switzerland), Barbara (Italy) and Viktor (Russia) about their experience with this remote process organized using Microsoft Teams.
