There are different export regimes, knowledge of which is of fundamental importance to be able to act effectively in international trade. The
former are classified according to their final
destination, i.e. those goods that leave the EU territory to be consumed permanently elsewhere, as opposed to temporary exports, in which goods leave the Customs Union to be repaired, processed, inspected or exhibited under the constraint of re-importation after a predetermined period of time.
There are also transits, i.e. goods which have an initial European destination and a subsequent non-EU destination, without stopping immediately and without having paid all the duties.
Finally, there is re-exportation, which consists of the export of goods following a temporary import procedure for processing, completed repairs or at the end of trade fairs.
