Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP) is an electronic declaration method that can be used when importing goods from third countries (including EU member states as from January 1, 2021) to the UK.
There are two CFSP procedures, Simplified Declaration Procedure (SDP) and Entry in the Declarant’s records, which can be combined.
Submitting import declarations with either procedure consists of two stages starting with a message to customs which provides a minimum amount of data to release the goods. After this simplified declaration, the full fiscal and statistical data must be submitted in a supplementary declaration by a specified deadline.
