  • to inform the sender of the status of the customs declaration (i.e. goods released, goods for examination, documents required, etc.)
  • to transmit additional information as agreed between parties (i.e. tax information, quantity information, etc.)
  • to respond to batched messages (i.e. CUSDEC, CUSCAR, CUSREP, CUSEXP).

Note: this message is not meant to replace the functionality of the CONTRL message.


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

It is envisaged that this message will allow a customs administration to respond to any customs message, including the possibility to respond to multi-consignment and batched messages. It is recognized that this message may be used by other parties to respond to customs messages.
