Таможенное оформление                                           Customs cargo (goods)
Before getting to the store shelves any merchandise becomes a load and passes all the stages of transportation. However, some loads (goods) acquire a special status and are referred to as "customs goods". What goods can be customs and how does this transformation arise? And even how was the concept of "customs goods" originated?
For centuries trade flowing between large villages, towns and later between countries were controlled by governors levied a tribute to merchants who traded with foreign people.
Thus the development of trade in the territories of Kievan Rus contributed to the fact that the princes established charters and "mytoes" – they were tributes to the treasury for carriage of goods through "mytnaya outposts" - mytnayas or mytnicas - the places where the carts (or boats in the rivers) stopped and paid “mytoes” (imposts). Mytnaya collectors of imposts (“mytniks”) were appointed from the members of the prince's retinue.
With the onslaught of the Golden Horde “mytnaya outposts" were renamed to “mytnaya tamojnya”. This word was brought by nomads and it came from Turkic "tamga" meant a stigma placed on a cattle and other valuable items as a sign of their ownership. An impost for Khan's labels issuance was also named “tamga” and the place where the goods were “tamged” were called "tamozhnya" (the modern Russian word that means “customs”).
Later the terms and even the customs laws have been changed but the idea has remained the same: any merchandise cannot be carried from one country to another without customs procedures. Any goods when it is transported across a border of a sovereign country or a customs zone acquires the status of “customs goods”. The amounts of customs tariffs, the specifics of customs goods declaration are now determined not by a brute force of prince attendances but by an international legislation and  depends on the code of the commodity nomenclature assigned to each group of products.
                                                                             Customs clearance
Today customs clearance is formalized in several stages. Firstly goods are prepared for shipment, they should be packed and labeled. Then  the consignor should pass the so-called "zatamozhka" – the customs formalities (execution of all documents required for export of goods from an exporting country (certificates, sales contracts) and customs export duties are paid. As a result, the authorized customs authority issues permission for export and the cargo is sealed for carriage. Thus, the goods are transformed into customs goods with the only difference that goods are “cauterized” by seals instead of "tamga".
When goods arrive to a customs terminal in an importing country their customs clearance begins there. A customs  broker sends a declaration to the customs authorities to verify compliance of character of the goods with the declared customs code.
At the same time a customs inspector examines the declared value of the goods using a departmental database and can also request additional price lists of the manufacturer, the export declaration, banking and other documents issued for the transportation. Then the customs officer examines the goods for their actual compliance with the declared (labeling, country of origin, description, lot numbers, dates of production, quantity and so on). The final stage of customs clearance is customs duties collection according to the declaration, and then the declaration is closed and the goods are released for free circulation.
In reality, things are not as simple as it might seem. After all, there is a complicated stratagem of interests of all parties involved in any customs goods carriage, and therefore, there are many traps and pitfalls and unwritten rules. There may be a lot of additional questions. Is any licenses needed? What certificates do you need to get? How many copies of shipping documents to prepare?
