Whether an Exit Summary Declaration (EXS) is required or not depends on what, and how the goods are being shipped. For normal goods exports, the Customs export declaration to CHIEF / CDS also counts as the EXS.
In certain cases, a standalone EXS safety and security declaration may be required, such as:
- Reusable packaging returned to the supplier
- Returns from ETSFs which don't need an export declaration

The declaration method of EXS is available to raise an Exit Summary Declaration (EXS).
In addition, the UK authorities have created a revised procedure for RoRo movements to the EU.
Rather than creating a standalone EXS declaration for RoRo exports, a full export declaration has to be raised with a special customs procedure code of 10 00 056. A new declaration method of EFS (RoRo Exit Summary Declaration (EFD)) has been created in AEB to support this procedure.
To use either of these declaration methods, the declaration needs to be viewed in advanced mode.
