Q.3 Given that deferred decs extended to Jan 1st how will you be ensuring that there is compliance with EIDR? A. There is no extension to the need to formalise customs declarations made Entry in Declarant's Records (EIDR) within 6 months - so for example, consignments recorded EIDR in January 2021 will still need to be declared in CHIEF by July, February by August etc. - HMRC will be working with Industry.

Q.4 Are government working with brokers (the intermediary sector generally) to ensure there is enough capacity to manage the significant increase in submitting customs declarations from 2021? Are brokers confident they can manage the additional load from 01 January 2022? It would be useful for government to get everyone round the table together to discuss this. A. HMRC continue to work closely with the intermediaries sector and have updated their customs agent page to further help traders find a suitable agent: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/list-of-customs-agents-and-fast-parcel-operators

Q.6 Is the requirement for ports still in the process of achieving full inventory linking also postponed to 01/01/2022 or is the timeline of 01/07 still applicable? A. Border locations without existing control systems at the end of transition, including RoRo listed locations, will not be required to control EU goods on the basis of declarations until 1 January 2022. This will support the flow of goods through these ports and minimise the chance of delays. Locations with existing systems will use their systems to facilitate the control of goods where declarations are present in HMRC systems (such as controlled goods) imported from the EU. HMRC has worked with these locations to ensure non-controlled goods are allowed to flow through From 1 January 2022, goods imported from the EU will be subject to standard customs control. Border locations receiving goods that are moving into GB from the EU will be able to choose between two models for customs control: the tried and tested model that is currently used to control goods moving between the UK and the rest of the world, known as the temporary storage model, or the new pre-lodgement model.
