The Government has been working with trade and industry partners to agree plans to utilise the Customs Declarations Service (CDS) to support implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol. For Great Britain the plan is to use CHIEF for EU-GB declarations as it has been scaled as part of No Deal planning.

As announced in the Command Paper, HMRC will soon set out more detailed plans to provide extensive support for businesses moving goods into Northern Ireland, including ensuring that they are ready and able to provide information through CDS.
