Customs Declaration Service (CDS)

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has begun a phased launch of the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) in August 2018. CDS will replace the existing Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system, with all declarations taking place on CDS from early 2019.


CHIEF currently processes declarations to facilitate the international movement of goods between the UK and non-EU countries and will continue to run for a time to aid the transition to CDS.


Why CDS is replacing CHIEF

CHIEF is one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated electronic services for managing customs declaration processes, but it’s nearly 25 years old and can’t be easily adapted to new requirements.


The decision to replace CHIEF with CDS was made before the EU referendum, however CDS will be scaled to handle any potential increases in the volume of declarations that may result from the UK’s exit from the EU.


How this will affect importers and exporters

If a trader imports or exports goods outside the EU, they or their agent will be currently using CHIEF to:

     •     process declarations for goods entering and leaving the UK or EU through ports and airports

     •     calculate and pay the correct duty and taxes

     •     complete customs information electronically


They will still be able to do these things on CDS, but there will be differences:CDS will be accessed on GOV.UK using a Government Gateway account – if traders use a customs declaration software package, they will need to follow the instructions and documentation from their supplier CDS will offer several new and existing services in one place - for example, traders will be able to view previous import and export data on pre-defined reports, check the tariff, apply for new authorisations and simplifications, and check their duty deferment statement online help will include self-service tools, guides and checklists


Some additional information will be required for declarations in order to align with the World Customs Organisation Kyoto Convention, currently being implemented in the UK through the Union Customs Code (UCC):


     •     an audit trail of previous document IDs

     •     additional party types, such as the buyer and seller

     •     possible additional commercial references or tracking numbers

     •     levelling – change between ‘Header’ and ‘Item’ for some data items


To align UK customs data with international standards, there will also be changes to:


     •     location of goods identification (based on UNLOCODE)

     •     the warehouse type code list

     •     item tax lines, including method of payment codes

     •     unit of quantity codes (ISO)

     •     the way customs procedures are quoted

     •     the number of items on a declaration – CDS will allow a maximum of 999 items on a customs declaration instead of the current 99 items
