INFORMATION FOR ECONOMIC OPERATORS - JANUARY 1, 2022


Reminder to economic operators "the schedule for the gradual reinstatement of British formalities relating to goods imported into / exported from the United Kingdom, with in particular the reinstatement, on 1 January 2022, of the customs declaration, customs controls and health formalities at import ”.

Alert also on the full deployment of the British border management system, Goods vehicle movement service (GVMS), to which all operators crossing the cross-Channel border will have to use from 1 January 2022.

From that date, in addition to the smart border process, already in place since January 1, 2021, economic operators will have to integrate the GVMS process into their logistics and customs clearance plan.

To this end, it should be noted that to use GVMS, it is necessary to create a Goods movement reference (GMR), equivalent to the logistics envelope of the smart border, and for this, to have an EORI GB number and to be registered with GVMS.
