Single Administrative Document (SAD)
(EU Customs) A multi-purpose form intended to reduce the number of documents required for the transportation of goods between EC countries. Under the Single European Market, the SAD is not required for shipments within the EC, but is used for Community Transit status, in the following circumstances:
T1: for non-EC goods which have not been entered into free circulation in the EC
T2: for free-circulation goods to be moved by surface (road, rail, ship or any combination) between EC countries via an EFTA (European Free Trade Area) country, e.g. Switzerland
T5: goods controlled under the EC’s Common Agricultural Policy.
