Supplementary Declarations (SDs): SD box completion rules

The details to be declared on the SD vary, depending on the CPC used. This section gives details of all the SAD boxes which are potentially declared on SDIs, SDWs and FSDs. These completion rules are in addition to anything specifically required by the Tariff.

These boxes will change to UCC requirements once the replacement Chief system is implemented.

Some trade software packages may require SAD boxes other than those listed here to be completed. CHIEF will not reject any SD that contains additional information (provided that the information completed is correct).
