If you are new to Imports, the following outlines some key information that will apply to you.

Please take a few moments to read through the information below before deciding to order / ship any goods into the UK.


EC member countries, can move from between fellow member EC Countries freely or without the need for further Customs Clearance... its what's known in the Freight Forwarding world as 'in Free Circulation'.

Please note: The local Customs authority, at the port of arrival, may ask you to provide documentary evidence to prove the country of origin of your goods, or proof of Customs Clearance. Ensure that you have this documentary evidence to hand or that it accompanies the goods during transit across the member countries borders

Customs Procedure Codes or CPCs are used to explain to Customs, as to the reason for your goods arriving into the Country.

Each 7-digit code will immediately explain to Customs as to whether your goods are staying here in the UK permanently or temporarily, whether they are being repaired or perhaps have returned after being repaired. In fact, there are lots of CPC codes which cover a whole manner of circumstances, so it is very important that the correct code is used.

With the introduction of SAD Harmonisation from January 2008, which brought the UK in-line with other members of the EC, the CPCs used in the UK Customs Tariff have changed to the same CPC codes as used in the rest of the EC (so the old 6-digit numbers became 7-digits long).
