A consultation on a new due diligence scheme for UK fulfilment houses handling goods imported from outside the European Union.


Consultation description

This consultation is about the introduction in 2018 of a new online scheme for UK fulfilment houses, which will set out standards of due diligence and record-keeping, and introduce penalties for non-compliance.
