Important Notice for Exporters and Importers
Revenue has announced that it intends move the new Electronic Manifest System (EMS) to fully live mode on 1st July 2015. This will mean that from that date, a customs declaration (SAD) in AEP will not be fully processed, and therefore goods will not be cleared for release, until a match is made in Revenue’s systems between the manifest and SAD data. Revenue has highlighted that there is currently a high degree of non-matching customs declarations and Manifest data and if no improvements are made in the coming months, there will be significant non-clearance of goods. Therefore it is vital that exporters and importers prepare for the EMS going live on the 1st July so that the transport of their goods is not subject to any delay.
For more information, please see the attached notice from Revenue or visit their website at www.revenue.ie. Any queries/comments and/or questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact 00 353 67 63215 or your local Customs office
