Documents, certificates, declarations used during import procedure
1. Single Administrative Document (SAD) is a regulated form and used as a written customs declaration. It has to be signed and contain all information necessary for the application of the regulations regulating the import of goods.

3. Transport documentation regulates the shipping and transport of goods. The most important documents regarding transport are the following:- CMR;- railway consignment note (CIM);- bill of lading;- air waybill (AWB). CMR contains information about: the sender's company, the recipient company, a detailed description of the goods, the markings of the vehicle, transport costs and customs duties, as well as a list of documents attached to the waybill.

The certificate of origin is issued by competent authority from the country of origin of the goods.
5. Veterinary or phytosanitary certificate (for agricultural products) is a mandatory document that must accompany goods of plant or animal origin, which provides that the package meets the specific requirements. (See: Phytosanitary/Veterinary Regulations Chapter).
