Are you or do you work with a UK Authorised Consignor? An authorised consignor is a person authorised to carry out transit operations without presenting the goods at the customs office of departure.
Changes to the requirements for providing information on GVMS (Goods Vehicle Movement Service) in relation to the Transit Accompanying Document Movement Reference Number (TAD MRN) came into effect on 1st August 2023.
It is now a requirement for all the DUCR (declaration unique consignment reference) numbers that may be covered under the TAD MRN to be included on the GMR (Goods Movement Record). This will ensure that consignments are presented correctly for customs processing. Any Authorised Consignors who rely on the hauliers they use to raise the GMR, need to be aware of these changes.
If you are an Authorised Consignor who holds one of the following authorisations and you are moving the goods in accordance with those authorisations, you can still use the TAD MRN. This is because the additional processes confirm that all the goods have been presented correctly for customs processing.
● Customs Supervised Export (CSE)
● Designated Export Places (DEPs)
● Internal Temporary Storage facilities (ITSFs), or
● Export Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
