Preparing for CDS Exports - MUCRs and MRNs

Although most of our recent CDS communications has focused on import procedures, the new system will eventually replace the existing export processes too.

The main lessons of implementing CDS in the import environment is the need to plan and implement the necessary changes as early as possible.

These lessons need to be applied to the export environment.

In this document HMRC has advised how to format the Master Unique Consignment Reference (MUCR) correctly for exports inventory linking.

It must be remembered that the Customs Declaration Service doesn't accept Movement Reference Numbers (MRNs) for export movements.

We would suggest that Members review their current export procedures in readiness for the launch of CDS and liaise with IT providers to ensure that their software has been or will be updated to reflect the new requirements.

Don't Forget!

Check out our Transitioning to CDS section on our website to stay up to date on the latest information, documents and videos from HMRC (including this one) to support you with the upcoming changes.
