The one-year time bar provided for in article L133-6 of the Commercial Code is not applicable to the customs agent

 

Supreme Court, 22 March 2016, n°14-16592: the claim for reimbursement of the customs fees by the customs agent is grounded on the mandate entrusted to undertake the customs formalities, which is a contract independent from the freight forwarding contract. Therefore, the one-year time bar mentioned in article L133-6 of the Commercial Code is not applicable to the actions arising out of its execution.
