Extension of the Central American Single Declaration

With the aim of better publicizing the operation of the Single Declaration, it was agreed to postpone the entry into force of the document until May 7, 2019.

Monday, April 1, 2019

The entry into force of the Central American Single Declaration (DUCA) had initially been set for April 1, 2019.

From the statement of the Single Window for Exports of Guatemala:

March 28, 2019. The Customs Office of the Superintendency of Tax Administration (SAT) informs that the Council of Economic Ministers (COMIECO) in a meeting held on March 28, 2019 in Guatemala City, through Resolution No. 410-2019, agreed to postpone until May 7, 2019, the entry into force of the Central American Single Declaration (DUCA) which had been set for April 1, 2019.

The extension will allow the Customs Service and its users to strengthen the communication, dissemination and knowledge of the processes related to the DUCA and thus achieve a successful implementation of it.

The Customs Office of the Superintendency of Tax Administration continues with the commitment assumed in the framework of the Association Agreement for the implementation of such declaration.
