CFSP Notice Updated - EIDR Notification

Monday 11th July 2016

The HMRC CFSP Public Notice has been updated to take account of the UCC.

One interesting section is in respect of EIDR notifications:

Notification of presentation waiver for EIDR authorised traders

When you declare your goods to a customs procedure by EIDR, you must notify HMRC that this has taken place. You can do this by sending an email containing minimal import data to a designated email account. HMRC can then take control over the goods where necessary.

The email address is: cfsp.notifications1@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk

Many EIDR traders are eligible for a waiver from providing this information and HMRC are currently able to authorise this waiver without an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) authorisation.

From 1 May 2016 you will be able to continue to benefit from this waiver if it is already part of your authorisation, until your authorisation is upgraded to UCC standards.

Once your authorisation is upgraded to UCC standards you will need an AEOC authorisation to continue to benefit from the waiver.

If you already have an AEO authorisation for simplifications and a waiver, this will continue after 1 May 2016.

The criteria which applies to a UCC authorisation and Notification waiver.

To be eligible for a waiver when your authorisation is upgraded to UCC standards you must ensure that:
•you have an AEO authorisation for simplifications
•the nature and flow of the goods warrant a waiver and are known to HMRC
•the EIDR supervising office has access to all the information it needs to control the goods and examine them when required
•when the goods are entered in the records they're not subject to prohibitions or restrictions
