Chapter Summary

Both the importer and the applicant must be notified if the release of goods is suspended according to Art.51. Pursuant to the general principle in accordance with Art. 41.3, such notification should preferably be in writing. It must be provided promptly after the suspension of release of the goods. The answer to the question of how a prompt notification is defined is to be based on general procedural provision of Art. 41.3, according to which decisions on merits of a case shall be notified "without undue delay". Considering that the suspension of release of goods creates considerable expenses, especially in connection with storage, the importer has a strong interest in obtaining a prompt notification in order to be able to react quickly to the situation. If the release of goods is wrongfully suspended for a longer period, considerable compensation claims may be raised against the applicant in accordance with Art.56.
