CDS Countdown – One Month To Go

 

We are just one month away from when the new CDS platform replaces CHIEF for import declarations.

Its is critical that importers are prepared as we build up to this important transition. If you leave registering for CDS to a few days before the changeover on 30th September, then you may face delays in receiving access and therefore delays in your products being cleared through customs.

The most important items that you need to do in preparation are shown in the below checklist.

Importers Prep-list

Importers MUST register for CDS.

Importers with Deferment facilities MUST set up a new direct debit for their deferment accounts to work with CDS.
Start HERE

Importers must arrange a new standing authority for broker(s) to use their Duty Deferment Accounts in CDS.
