Customs Declaration Training

The method in which customs entries are submitted is permanently changing in November 2023, when CHIEF (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) will no longer be active and will be replaced by the Customs Declaration Service (CDS). As a result, there are changes in the way a business can complete a customs declaration, which you must prepare for. More now than ever, it is vital to compliantly submit your customs declarations, to have an advantage over competitors in a difficult trading period.

The customs declaration training will highlight what you need to know to accurately complete a customs declaration, and successfully manage the transition from CHIEF to CDS.
