0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Customs declaration message (CUSDEC) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional Definition

This Customs Declaration Message (CUSDEC) permits the transfer of data from a declarant to a customs administration for the purpose of meeting legislative and/or operational requirements in respect of the declaration of goods for import, export or transit. The message may also be used, for example :

importer in another country;

to another;

governments agencies and/or interested administrations.


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.


1.3. Principles

This message incorporates the necessary transport, statistical and customs information. Provision has also been made for the inclusion of appropriate commercial information which may be accepted by customs in lieu of supporting documentation.

The design principles adopted allow for referencing one or more commercial documents pertaining to the same declaration and for the grouping of document lines into a single customs item. A customs item consists of the grouping of those document lines having the same customs characteristics (e.g. tariff number, declared use, etc). The message correspondingly permits the use of single or multi-packaging concepts and their identification to a customs item.
