Decision of the Plenum of the Higher Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation No. 29 of July 26, 2005 on Some Issues of the Practice of Processing of Disputes Pertaining to Determination of the Customs Cost of Commodities

The declaring party may prove the legality of the use of the method of determination of the custom cost of commodities chosen by them by presenting the documents and information obtained form other parties, including those in the sphere of production, shipment and sale of commodities. Refusal on the part of the declaring party to present explanations and substantiating documents in the absence of objective reasons preventing from their submission is regarded as a failure to fulfil the prerequisite of the documentary confirmation of the true cost of commodities.

If it is impossible to use the main method of determination of the cost of commodities, each subsequent method is used if the customs cost cannot be determined using the previous one. This means that the customs body must substantiate the impossibility of application of the previous methods. In this case, the customs body plea of the absence of the price and other information with it permitting to use any method of determination of the customs cost may be acceptable in substantiation to avoid to apply this method only if the impossibility of obtaining or use of such information, including the one in the customs databases, is confirmed objectively.
