Customs Procedure Codes (CPCs): general information

This section contains an explanatory table that explains how the CFSP CPCs are structured. Each digit within the CPC has a particular significance which enables officers to identify the type of goods and their risk category, the type of release being requested and the procedure to which the goods are being removed.

Please note that once the Chief replacement system is implemented the normal CPCs will be used for CFSP declarations and not the ‘06’ series of CPCs.

 

Digits 1& 2 Digit 3
   
  Type of goods
06 = CFSP 1 = Normal
  2 = Controlled goods
  3 = Controlled drugs
  4 = Excise goods
   
Digit 4 Digits 5 & 6 & 7
Release mechanism Regime entered to
0 = Frontier  
1 = Transit 001 = NCTs
2 = Warehouse Types A, C, D and E 002 = National transit for goods requiring Phytosanitary and/or Conformity certificates
4 = Free Zone 040 = Free circulation, etc
9 = FSD 061 = Economic relief
  071 = Warehousing
  078 = Free Zone
  090 = FSD

 

This table gives a complete listing of the CFSP CPCs available. It also specifies the routing to which the goods would normally be subject:

 

06 10 040 SDP - Release to free circulation (route 6)
   
06 10 061 SDP - Release to a Special procedure (route 6)
06 11 000 EIDR - Release  by C21 to inland Temporary Storage facility
06 11 001 EIDR - Release to NCTS by C21 (route 6)
06 11 002 EIDR - Release by C21 for goods requiring Phytosanitary and/or Conformity certificates (route 6)
06 12 071 SDP - Release to types R (ex type A), U (ex type C, D , E)Warehousing
 (route 6)    
  06 14 078 SDP - Release into Free Zone (route 6)

 

Unlike full frontier entries, CFSP entries are usually assigned a route 6 designation. No paperwork would normally be required for entries declared to the above CPCs unless a specific Post-Clearance Action (PCA) code is triggered.

 

06 20 040 SDP - Controlled goods released to free circulation (route 1 or 2)
   
06 20 061 SDP - Controlled goods released to a Customs procedure with economic impact (route 1 or 2)
06 22 071 SDP - Controlled goods released to types R (ex type A), U (ex type C, D , E)Warehousing (route 1 or 2)
06 24 078 SDP - Controlled goods released into Free Zone (route 1 or 2)

 

Goods released using the controlled goods CPCs are subject to border admissibility controls. Hard copy SFDs and full supporting documentation must be sent to the National Clearance Hub for these goods. The goods must not be released until all frontier formalities have been completed. Please see CFSP03350 and CFSP10000 for further details.

 

06 30 040 SDP - Controlled drugs released to free circulation (route 1 or 2)
   
06 30 061 SDP - Controlled drugs goods released to a Customs procedure with economic impact (route 1 or 2)
06 32 071 SDP - Controlled drugs released to types R (ex type A), U (ex type C, D , E)Warehousing (route 1 or 2)
06 34 078 SDP - Controlled drugs goods released into Free Zone (route 1 or 2)

 

As these goods require Home Office licences these CPCs require a hard copy SFD and supporting documentation to be sent to the National Clearance Hub prior to gaining release of the goods.

 

06 40 040 SDP - Excise goods released to free circulation (route 1 or 2)
   

 

In order to facilitate controls on the importation and movement of excise goods these goods require a hard copy SFD and supporting paperwork to be sent to the National Clearance Hub prior to gaining release of the goods.
