Introduction of Dynamic Detailed Goods Description in GICCS

  • DATE08 Mar 2016

Goes Live 8th March 2016

The concept of Dynamic Goods description is being introduced when preparing Customs declaration effective 8th March 2016 on the GICCS platform.
The concept allows for the pre-definition of a set of tags specific to all commodity codes both on the GCMS and GICCS platforms.
Declarants whilst preparing their declarations would be required to choose from all or a a sub set  of different data sets being number, free text, List of values and date related to the particular commodity code chosen.

This implementation of the dynamic DGD would significantly improve on goods description for an improved Risk assessment by Customs and Trade Statistics as a whole.
