SMART BORDERS

The Smart Border system was implemented to streamline trade between the EU and the UK post-Brexit. It involves specific processes for both exporting and importing goods to ensure compliance and efficiency.

Smart Borders

Smart Borders: Export Process

  1. Preparation of Goods:
    • Supplier/Shipper: Prepare all necessary documentation, such as the invoice and a detailed description of the goods.
  2. Customs Declaration:
    • Customs Declarant: Submit the customs declaration where the goods were packaged or loaded, and transmit it to the carrier.
  3. Logistics Envelope (Recommended):
    • Customs Declarant/Shipper/Carrier: Create a logistics envelope if multiple declarations are involved. This groups several declarations under a single barcode, saving time during the pairing stage.
    • This process is similar to the UK GMR and Irish PBN system
  4. Embarking the Goods for Crossing:
    • Driver: Present all customs documents to the registration agent, who will pair the transport vehicle’s plate number with the customs declaration or logistics envelope barcode.

Smart Borders: Import Process

  1. Preparation of Goods:
    • Supplier/Shipper: Prepare all elements required for the declaration, including the invoice and a detailed description of the goods.
  2. Customs Declaration:
    • Declarant: Submit the declaration and send it to the carrier. For goods requiring sanitary and phytosanitary control, include the Common Health Entry Document (CHED) reference in the declaration.
  3. Entry Summary Declaration (ENS):
    • Carrier: Submit the ENS for safety and security purposes.
  4. Logistics Envelope (Recommended):
    • Declarant/Shipper/Carrier: Create a logistics envelope if multiple declarations are involved.
    • This process is similar to the UK GMR and Irish PBN system
  5. Embarking the Goods for Crossing:
    • Driver: Present all customs documents to the registration agent for pairing, except for the ENS, which is not required during the pairing stage(Brexit-Smart Border-Imp…).
