HMRC Announces System Downtime For CDS - 29/01/22

HMRC have announced planned downtime of the CDS and GVMS system availability. Due to scheduled maintenance none of the these services will be available from 9:30pm on Saturday 29 January 2022 to 5am on Sunday 30 January 2022

During this time:

  • you will not be able to submit declarations
  • you will not be able to obtain a goods movement reference for declarations from the goods vehicle movement service

In order to mitigate the fallback downtime and avoid delays BIFA advises Members to complete any relevant work that needs Customs Declaration Service declarations to be attached to goods movement references before or after the maintenance period.

For further assistance please contact the Customs and International Trade Helpline (CIT) on 0300 322 9434 (Operating 08:00-22:20 Mon-Fri & 08:00-16:00 Sat-Sun)
