The Office of the Revenue Commissioners is responsible for customs control of the EU Customs Union in Ireland. Revenue provides whatever relevant technical advice and expertise is required by the Government in the context of assessing technology options to manage the challenges of the UK exit from the European Union. I am advised by Revenue that there are no technology options currently existing that would provide the necessary assurance required to comply with the Union Customs Code.
