If you want to transport beer, tobacco products, energy products, alcohol and alcoholic goods or sparkling wine or sparkling wine intermediate products, for example, within Germany or to another European member state under duty suspension, you need a special permit. In addition, you must register to participate in the computerised Excise Movement and Control System (EMCS). The various transport steps are recorded in this system.
