    And that would be why they were seized as they were described as books.

    Is it not the responsibility of the exporter to correctly describe the goods, not the recipient?

Bummer but that's the law.
    The rules are different for EU and non EU imports.

    But on an EU to EU parcel no customs declaration is needed.
