Please note: Imports into Northern Ireland must continue to be notified via TRACES.

 

We have issued this communications to those responsible for the load, with the below additional guidance.  We are expecting not all importers will be aware of the change, so our advice would be to check both systems and use which ever system is relevant to make the decision.  

 

Additional guidance for agents / responsible for load:

What you need to do now

 

If you have yet to notify of consignments arriving into Great Britain between 7 - 13 December, please raise these in Traces NT.
