1 January 2022 – Full Customs Controls

On the 1st of January 2022 full customs declarations and
controls are due to be introduced as planned. This means that
the option to delay customs declarations for up to 175 days,
without an authorisation from HMRC, is coming to an end on
31 December.

If you’re already making full import declarations, or if you’ve
started submitting supplementary declarations, you are well
prepared. Learn more about making a full import declaration.

If you have not made any declarations to HMRC for goods
you’ve moved from the EU since January 2021, you really need
to start preparing now for this change. Time is of the essence
and poor preparation threatens to disrupt your supply chain.

Which Trade Rule Changes Have
Been Delayed?

You may be aware of a postponement to certain customs rules
being issued by the Government. The announcement primarily
relates to agri-food imports, with all other rules remaining
unaffected. While the original introduction point for some has
already passed, now is a good as time as ever to reiterate their
importance and get them to the forefront of your planning. If
they’re already in place, great; you’re one step ahead. If not,
take head of these important dates if relevant to you;

  • Pre-notification of agri-food imports – moved from 1
    October 2021 to 1 January 2022
  • Export health certificates – moved from 1 October 2021
    to 1 July 2022
  • Phytosanitary certificates/SPS goods checks – moved
    from 1 January 2022 to 1 July 2022
  • Safety and security import declarations – moved from 1
    January 2022 to 1 July 2022
