Repayment of customs charges on rejected imports: new address (CIP17)

There's a new address to use when asking for a repayment of customs charges on rejected imports using form C&E1179.


Claims for repayment or remission of customs duties made under Union Customs Code Article 118 of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 relating to rejected goods from outside of the EU, have in the past been processed by the National Rejected Imports team based in Reading.

This work has now been transferred to colleagues in Salford.
