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.
