Scheduled maintenance of the ETCB information systems from 4–5 December

9 November 2020

There will be a scheduled interruption in the information systems of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board (ETCB) from 22:00 on the evening of 4 December, which is expected to last until 09:00 on the morning of 5 December. During the interruption, the online services environment e-MTA and the information systems and X-tee services accessible from the e-MTA will be unavailable. Queries about public information in the ETCB information systems cannot be made during this period either.

A more detailed overview of the affected services and recommendations for the interruption period can be found on the ETCB website:

Fallback procedures must be used for customs procedures when border crossing, which may take somewhat longer than usual. Fallback procedures must also be used when moving excise goods (EMCS (855.85 KB, PDF), SADHES, MAIS).

We ask our clients to take the scheduled maintenance into account and, if possible, plan all operations related to the ETCB information systems and databases (including customs or excise goods clearance) before or after the interruption.

The interruption takes place in connection with the upgrading of the infrastructure of ETCB information systems.

We apologise for the inconvenience.
