Automated Multiple Declarations in the Trade Test environment

Automated submission of multiple declarations are now possible in the Trade Test environment within certain parameters.  You should adhere to the following guidelines for any automated testing in Trade Test:

  • Up to 1 declaration every 2 seconds
  • Up to 120 declarations per automated run
  • Up to 12 goods items per declaration

 As HMRC work to resolve some of the application issues that have impacted the stability of the Trade Test environment, please be aware there may continue to be sporadic issues with notifications in Trade Test. Regular updates on the Trade Test service will be via the SDST.

The performance of the Trade Test environment and the guidance for automated testing will be reviewed and updated as necessary with each release.
