Results updated 28 Nov 2017

Following internal engagement with Government departments and one response from an external organisation, the Customs and Excise Bill is going through the legislative process and had its third reading on 14 November. For details see Tynwald Bills.



Views are sought on the amendments made to existing customs and excise legislation, namely the Customs and Excise Management Act 1986 and the Customs and Excise Act 1993, and to the Terrorism and Other Crime (Financial Restrictions) Act 2014 in respect of UN and EU sanctions.


Why your views matter

The amendments are intended to ensure that customs legislation continues to be able to cope with existing and anticipated developments, and to meet certain requirements and recommendations following the Moneyval evaluation of the Island in 2016.
