Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) is due to be replaced by the new Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and our online course covers the main differences between the two systems.

Course Outline
Developed jointly with Agency Sector Management (ASM) this eLearning course will enable you to submit customs declarations for exports and imports via the new CDS system.
There are eight modules including simulation exercises so you can put into practice what you have learned. You will need a 100 per cent pass rate for the final assessment module which demonstrates a successful customs declaration transmission.

Who is it for?
The course is primarily aimed at anyone who has used the CHIEF system before or understands customs procedures.

Structure
Throughout the course there are exercises to complete and a ‘knowledge check’ at the end of each module.
There is also a ‘resource area’ which contains explainer videos, downloads, a glossary and useful links.
