For commercial purpose, a registered trade with concerned license (if required) as per the business and have enlisted in the Trade and Company Register of the country is must for exporting and importing of goods from and into Croatia.

Croatia is a member state of European Union. So it has certain similar procedures as like the other member states in the Union. Since  Croatia falls  under  EU countries,  a common  trade policy is adopted  to import/export  most  of  the products .   A separate rules and regulations are applied to specific products when importing and exporting in the European Union called Integrated Tariff of the European Communities (TARIC code).  

For any import, export or transit in EU countries, an EORI number is compulsory. EORI means Economic Operator Registration and Identification.  The European Union (EU) legislation has required all member states to adopt the Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) scheme. All importers, exporters and other transporters need to use a unique EORI reference number in all electronic communications with Customs and other government agencies involved in the international trade. This means that anyone involved with export, transit or import operations need to have EORI number.

All customs administration works are pursued under Croatian Customs Administration belonging to The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Croatia. Also, the Administration conducts the control of foreign goods, prepares professional foundations for the determination of economic and development policy in the field of the system of customs duties and excise duties and of tariff and non-tariff protection, adopts measures for the implementation thereof, organizes and supervises the work of the customs service, monitors and processes data on export, import and transit passage, carries out customs supervision in the transport of goods and passengers between Croatia and foreign countries and control over the products susceptible to special taxes etc

Before goods are placed under the export procedure, an exit summary declaration (EXS) must be lodged for the goods. An export declaration must be lodged when goods are exported to regions outside the fiscal region of the EU. Export declaration is lodged electronically either as a message declaration or using the Export Declaration Service. It can submit on SAD (Single Administrative Document) form.
