UCC Navigator


Following the introduction of the Union Customs Code, the public and private sectors have been looking for a smart way to navigate the complexity of the UCC, which must be read in conjunction with the Delegated Act, the Transitional Delegated Act and the Implementing Act to gain a proper understanding and interpretation of the legal provisions.

This task is greatly simplified through the use of our interactive web-based tool, ‘UCC Navigator’, which has been developed by the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies at Charles Sturt University in collaboration with a leading software developer, Vivid Thought.

This innovative online tool which is available in 23 languages, provides a visual overview of the linkages between the various provisions of the UCC and related legislation through the use of smart interactive infographics. It is extremely user-friendly and enables the user to:

  • Navigate the EU Customs law with ease
  • Instantly see how articles influence and are influenced by related legislation
  • Instantaneously locate topics covered by the legislation
  • Conduct searches and view legislation in multiple languages
  • Switch between languages on any search or content page
  • Access search results in the context in which they appear in the legislation
  • Receive a visual overview of legislative linkages via interactive infographics
  • Click on articles in the graphics to navigate linked articles of legislation, or simply hover over them for more information


UCC Navigator is available in 23 languages, including Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish.


A one-year single-user licence can be purchased for €250 and a two-year user licence for €350.

When 10 or more licences are purchased, the per-user fee reduces to €200 for one year and €280 for two years.
