5Legal framework 2/3Reg. (UE) n. 952/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council (Union Customs Code):Article Cooperation between authorities1. Where, in respect of the same goods, controls other than customs controls are to be performed by competent authorities other than the customs authorities, customs authorities shall, in close cooperation with those other authorities, endeavour to have those controls performed, wherever possible, at the same time and place as customs controls (one-stop-shop), with customs authorities having the coordinating role in achieving this.5
