When traders register with the Trader Support Service they will receive support and guidance on what the Protocol means for them. This will include the steps they need to take to comply with the Protocol.

The Trader Support Service will support traders to understand the information they will need to collect about their goods, including their description, value and any supporting documentation required. HMRC and the consortium are currently finalising technical details on how the declaration service will operate, and will be setting out the specifics of how information should be provided via the TSS shortly.

The service will then use this information to complete import and safety and security declarations on behalf of trader users. Where a business uses the TSS to complete these they will not need access to HMRC systems, such as CDS or ICS, themselves.
