Discussions with HMRC, OEUK and the UK Government on a permanent customs solution for the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) are moving forward, with the industry’s preferred option of declaration by conduct receiving ministerial approval.
This will enable non licensable and free circulation goods to move to and from the UKCS without a formal customs entry being processed through the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) or Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF).
In the absence of an entry, there will still be a requirement for a detailed manifest with every shipment. LS Customs will be working with OEUK as part of the industry group as these details are finalised prior to any implementation.
Please note that this is still in progress with no definitive timetable in place. Until the legislation has passed, your current process for UKCS shipments will remain the same. Sign up to our newsletter for further updates.
