TTM5.0 DAN Validation & Known Error Log

TTM5.0 has introduced DAN validation. This means that you must use the correct deferment account number for the EORI used on each declaration submission for tests to be successful in TTM5.0. Details of the DANs that can be used for the shared EORIs from the EORI “Library” can be found in Appendix E of the TTM5.0 Pack, which was issued on Friday 07/09. A new Known Error Log (KEL) for TTM5.0 has been added to the online forum. Please keep in mind that trade test is a test system and, while every effort has been made to ensure the KEL is comprehensive, it is possible that further bugs may be identified during TTM5.0.
