TIN news:    The Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS RF) today officially notified the Russian TIR guaranteeing association, ASMAP, of the extension of its agreement until 28 February 2015. 
 
This decision allows all concerned stakeholders to take steps towards finalising, in the next few months, the ongoing tender procedure aimed at establishing the Russian TIR guaranteeing association.
 
This FCS RF notification follows an order issued by the First Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Shuvalov, dated 17 November 2014, which formally mandated the FCS RF and the Russian Ministry of Transport to work together to ensure the full functioning of the TIR Convention on Russian territory as soon as possible.
 
In the meantime, considering the lack of available details, the IRU cannot exclude that practical problems could still happen at border-crossing points in Russia in the near future.
 
The IRU will provide further information as soon as it is available.
