Changes to UK customs declarations – CDS is nearly here

From 30 September 2022, the Customs Handling of Import Export Freight (CHIEF) system will close for imports and the new Customs Declarations Service (CDS) will become the UK’s sole customs declaration platform. CHIEF is scheduled to close for exports on 31 March 2023.

In order to avoid risk of not being able to import goods into the UK from 1 October 2022, unregistered importers must register for the new Customs Declaration Service as soon as possible.
