Customs conveyance report message
This specification provides the definition of the Customs conveyance report message (CUSREP) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners, involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional Definition
This Customs Conveyance Report Message (CUSREP) permits the transfer of data from a carrier to a Customs administration for the purpose of meeting Customs reporting requirements in respect of the means of transport on which cargo is carried.
1.2. Field of Application
This message may be applied for both national and international trade. It is based on universal practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.
It is envisaged that the Customs Conveyance Report Message may be initiated by the carrier to report details of the means of transport on which cargo is conveyed to a Customs administration. The message is transmitted upon arrival of the vessel, flight, etc., or where national legislation permits, prior to arrival. The data provides a means of establishing the basis of a cargo inventory report for the conveyance in question. Details of individual consignments carried on the conveyance will be subsequently transmitted to Customs using a CUSCAR message or a series of such messages. It also allows Customs to undertake selectivity processing in order to select high risk conveyances and shipments requiring examination.
The message embodies reporting requirements of all modes of transport. Each message covers the data requirements for one conveyance. The message may be used for reporting empty containers as well as numbers of passengers and crew.
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.6 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.
