Customs Freight Simplified Procedures

Entry in the Declarant's Records (EIDR) entry into Customs Warehousing

CFSP traders must enter one of the following CPCs on their SFD:

06 11 000 release by C21 to Inland Temporary Storage Facility
06 11 001 CFSP release to NCTS
06 11 002 EIDR release by C21 for goods requiring Phytosanitary and/or Conformity certificates


The entry into warehouse must be noted in the EIDR/stock records. What constitutes an EIDR record (eg spreadsheet, commercial system, duty management system) is agreed at the authorisation stage and entered in the authorisation letter (C&E58). See CFSP04750 for further information on EIDR records.

Type A warehousing

When a trader applies to use EIDR to enter the goods to a Type A warehouse, there must be a letter from the warehouse keeper agreeing to the proposal attached to the CFSP application form. It should also confirm that EIDR is indicated in box 14 of the Customs Warehousing authorisation applicable to the Customs Warehouse designated on the CFSP application.

Where a trader or a third party authorised by the trader maintains the EIDR record, they must notify the warehouse keeper that they have adhered to customs formalities regarding entry in the EIDR record and provide details of the removals. Where the warehouse keeper maintains the EIDR record, the trader must request that the warehouse keeper updates the EIDR record and provides details of the entry.

When goods are entered to the Type A warehouse the date of entry, DUCR, SFD/ SDI entry numbers and dates, number of packages and full description of the goods must be provided to the warehouse-keeper. This information is required by the Type A warehouse-keeper for the stock records and it should be maintained with the warehousing records.
