FAQs

Your questions regarding imports to France

  1. 1

    When do we need to carefully examine customs regulations for a particular product?

    As soon as you anticipate shipment of a product, it is essential to verify the applicable rights and taxes, as well as associated regulation in order to fully appreciate customs risks and optimize your operations in terms of fiscal and customs requirements.

    In the event of any doubt, request a product customs classification (RTC).

    Are you transporting special or dangerous products?

    What we commonly call "dangerous goods" are products that contain substances which may prove dangerous when it comes to air transport. Compliance with a specific regulation is required to package, handle, and declare them correctly so they can be transported without risk to the cargo plane and its occupants.

    There are 9 classes of special products (DGRs): explosives, gas, inflammable liquids, inflammable solids, combustible materials, toxic and infectious materials, radioactive materials, corrosive materials and dangerous merchandise various. Many chemicals and pharmaceuticals fall into these categories. These materials or articles are regulated because they pose a potential risk to the health and safety of people, infrastructure and/or their means of transport.

    Transportation of dangerous merchandise is governed by various national and international regulations, in particular the Regulation of the IATA for the transportation of dangerous goods and the International Maritime Code for dangerous merchandise. Freight forwarding and cargo agents, packagers, handlers, and others involved in the preparation and shipment of dangerous merchandise must comply with this regulation and complete regular training to ensure that their shipments are in compliance so that they can be handled quickly and easily by air and sea shipping companies.

    The Mathez Freight Forwarding agencies are perfectly positioned to plan the shipment of dangerous merchandise by air or by cargo ship, because they have the required accreditations, trained personnel, a security agent, and the appropriate insurance provisions.
