CDS Down time - 6th - 7th July

CDS Down time - 6th - 7th July

2 Jul 2024

Due to scheduled maintenance on the Customs Declaration Service (CDS), the CDS service will be unavailable to all users from 9.30pm on Saturday 6 July to 5:30am on Sunday 7 July.

Declarations submitted during this timeframe will be processed at the end of the downtime.

Please ask your agent to follow HMRC’s technical guidance on how to prevent and resolve a ‘no ‘match’ to resolve any SPS error messages on CDS your agent may see, once the declarations have been processed.

Creating, updating, or embarking a goods movement reference (GMR) that are linked to CDS could be affected during the times listed. For guidance on GVMS, your agent should refer to the GVMS service availability and issues page.

Please continue to monitor the inspection status of CHED import notifications submitted for consignments arriving during this time period on the IPAFFS dashboard. Port health authorities, local authorities and APHA will still be able to call consignments for SPS inspections independently of CDS.
