Declaration category data sets for CDS

Use appendix 21 to find declaration category sets for the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) when importing into the UK.

This appendix provides a detailed breakdown of the specific data elements needed for each declaration category.

The appendix is in 7 parts.

Appendix 21: General notes

Appendix 21: Declaration Category data sets contains a separate table for each declaration category type, for example H1 data set. These tables also provide a cross reference from the new element data number to the previous SADH box reference number for correlation purposes.

The data set tables also state whether the data element is mandatory in all cases, optional for the declarant or dependant on the circumstances being declared.

Each data set table identifies the requirements for completion of the appropriate boxes on a customs declaration dependent on the individual declaration category.

Where the note column shows ‘NR’ this indicates that the data element is not required for the specific declaration category.

Notes are included to assist in the reading of the data set tables.

Symbol Description
A Mandatory: data required by every member state or data for which the UK has opted to mandate as always required
C Optional for economic operators: data that economic operators may decide to supply
D Dependant on customs declaration scenario for example, procedure code, method of payment
X Data element required at the item level of the declaration of goods. The information entered at the item level of goods is valid only for the items of goods concerned
Y Data element required at the header level of the declaration of goods. The information entered at the header level is valid for all declared items of goods
