Register your interest

Are you looking to learn about HMRC’s new Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and how it differs from CHIEF?

P2D is hosting training for brokers, 3PLs and traders to prepare for the migration to the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) in 2022. Register your interest today.


The Transition 

HMRC is phasing out the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system on 31 March 2023. The Customs Declaration Service (CDS) will be replacing it as the UK’s single customs platform.

The Customs Declaration Service supports the UK’s trade with both the EU and the rest of the world. 

HMRC will phase out CHIEF services in two phases:

30th September 2022

You will not be able to make import declarations using CHIEF.

31st March 2023

You will not be able to make export declarations using CHIEF and the National Export System (NES).

CDS Training Content 

Our course will cover the main differences between the two systems, the additional data requirements, functions, features and benefits of CDS and how to submit compliant declarations.

At the end of the course you will: 

  • Have access to a CDS customs declarations training environment

  • Understand the types of declaration that can be submitted through CDS 

  • Understand CDS data elements and their rules for completion 

  • Be able to relate CHIEF procedures to new CDS procedures and be clear on the differences between the two 

  • Be familiar with electronically creating, completing and submitting Customs declarations to CDS 

  • Be aware of the CDS system’s ways of working, including feedback messages, clearance procedures and error handling
