HMRC are developing a new Customs Declarations System (CDS) in order to accommodate all procedure and process changes to the EU legislation brought by the Union Customs Code. CDS is set to replace CHIEF by March 2019 as the UCC implementation period ended on 30/04/2017. Click title for more information.
