Customs Declaration Services Programme

Transition: the period between delivery of first live CDS functionality until 100% customer take-up.
- The transition period is expected to be around 6 months.
- We aim to give as much flexibility as possible as to when and how stakeholders migrate.
- Commercial software and/or IT service providers will manage roll-out and transition of their own customer base, to avoid local peaks and fit with their own resourcing constraints.
- HMRC will review stakeholder plans and transition approaches to stagger take-up and manage the risk of multiple late transitions – mutually agreed entry criteria will be key to approval.
