On 20 July, the British International Freight Association published updated FAQ about the import/export declaration system that is replacing the old CHIEF system. HMRC will be closing the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system in 2 stages –

customs platform, with all businesses needing to declare goods through CDS after 31 March 2023.
