Agency Sector Management (ASM) and the British International Freight Association (BIFA) will be running a joint webinar to help businesses with their preparations for this final migration on January 9, 2024.

On March 30, 2024, HMRC will formally close the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system for exports, and businesses will need to declare all goods through the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) from this date.

The seminar has been organised to help address any concerns those members and users may still have about their readiness to complete the final switch to the new system, and to provide companies with advice and guidance about the implementation process.

Sharon Greer, ASM general manager says: “The seminar will provide an important update on the final preparations businesses need to make in order to ensure that their final migration to CDS for exports is successful.
