The eVV (Electronic files assessment decisions) is the digital Swiss customs clearance system. The assessment decisions can be issued and obtained in both paper and electronic formats. Retrieval of the electronic assessment decision is controlled via the applicant’s business identification number (UID) indicated in the import customs declaration or via the centralized settlement procedure (CSP) account.
