CDS - The New Customs Declaration Service
90 minute on-demand online course - taken from a 2023 live recording
The Customs Declaration Service (CDS) has now replaced CHIEF for handling imports, with exports following in November 2023. Every business that trades internationally must be signed up for CDS, so it is crucial to understand the new system in order to continue working well with your agents and trading effectively.
This 90-minute course recording will provide you with a step-by-step guide to using the CDS dashboard and will clearly outline the various new options and features available to you. Importantly, it will help you understand the new customs declarations and how they differ from the CHIEF C88s - highlighting the key boxes you will need to be aware of.
The course is presented by our international trade expert, David Hooper, who has already helped many businesses adapt their systems in readiness for the changes.
“Good coverage on what we need to watch for as we transition from CHIEF to CDS. Handy tips on what we need to provide to agents. Thorough answers to questions asked.”
“Really informative and very straight forward - I wasn't baffled with the usual customs jargon. As a company who has an agent to complete declarations, I very much appreciated the accurate information.”

Accounts Payable Supervisor
“Thanks for the very good training. Helped me a lot to have a better understanding on why the new CDS system is going to be implemented, new features, how it works etc.”
“The example forms are really useful - I used the example CDS declaration to compare to a "real" one from our agents while David described the entries required.”
