    • queued messages will be processed
    • the risking response may change from ‘controlled’ to ‘release’
  • embark goods movement reference (outbound) — departure messages will be queued and will be processed and updated when the maintenance ends
  • embark goods movement reference (inbound) — goods movement references with CHIEF declarations will go to a ‘controlled state’ and when the maintenance ends:
    • queued messages will be processed
