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.
Who is it for?
The course is aimed at anyone who has had experience of submitting declarations using the CHIEF system before and/or understands UK customs procedures and submitting declarations.
Developed jointly with Agency Sector Management (ASM) this eLearning course will explain the key differences between CHIEF and CDS and enable you to submit your customs declarations for exports and imports via the new CDS system. This course does not teach you about the declaration.
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.
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.
