CDS – Updated Documentation Inbox

A new baselined version of the CDS Declaration Information Service is now available to download.

 Key Update

  • Minor terminology corrections and added details for input search parameters and response items.

Also, anticipated changes to the Route of Entry (ROE) table are as follows, bearing in mind that this has not been updated in the attached document but will be included in the next iteration of this document:

  • A Route 5 code will be added for ALVS once the DEFRA licencing functionality is available in CDS.  
  • ROE codes will be extended to two characters (code values same as CHIEF) to provide more granular OGD routes, this will be early in the next phase of CDS”.  

The attached document will also be available on Google Drive in the following folder – CDS 03 Customs Declaration.
