customs & industry

We typically publish Customs Information Papers (CIPs) up to 30 days before they appear on the HMRC website. We are also in constant contact with customs and CSPs (Community Systems Providers) so we get advanced notification of any planned systems downtime and up to date information about any unplanned disruptions which we monitor closely on your behalf.
