Testing traders' systems: PA1 completion rules

The authorising officer must enter the full name, address, contact details, CFSP EPU number (where the SDs are to go - eg CITEX trader = 731, Large Business trader = 760, Isle of Man trader = 740), EORI number and deferment account number of the CFSP trader.

The authorising officer must also sign the PA1 before sending it to the CFSP UoE via email.

Section 1. CFSP procedure types

Tick the required procedure. This information is for CHIEF Operations so they can set up the trader’s EORI details against the relevant procedure authorisation codes. These are:

F = Simplified Declaration Procedure

L = Release of goods at frontier to EIDR

W = Simplified Declaration for entry into Customs Warehousing

W = EIDR removals from Customs Warehousing

Section 2. DTI route for SDI/SDW

Box 1 Trader using existing badge

If this option is ticked the CFSP authorised trader will use an existing frontier badge, it could belong to them or even to another authorised trader but more likely it will be a badge belonging to a frontier agent.

Box 2 Trader using new badge

If this option is ticked the CFSP trader or their DR either does NOT have a frontier DTI badge or they have decided to obtain another DTI badge just for making CFSP entries. One of the CSP’s will supply this.

Section 3. Email route for SDI/SDW

Box 1 Trader using own badge

When this option is ticked the authorised trader wants their own email role on which their declarations can be sent eg (EDCAAA).

Box 2 Trader using existing third party badge

If this option is ticked the authorised trader wants to use someone else’s (eg an agent/warehouse-keeper acting as a DR) existing email role to send entries to CHIEF via email to EDCS. They do not require a role and location of their own.

Box 3 Trader using own ‘any agent’ facility

If this option is ticked the authorised trader is making declarations in their own name (Self Representation, Indirect Representation) and may possibly want to make declarations in the name of and on behalf of other authorised traders (Direct Representation). This option means that only one role and location needs to be set up within the software, a separate role and location for each customer is not required.

(Note: When acting as a DR, each of the DR’s authorised CFSP customers will require their authorising officer to complete a PA1 with the email route option 2 ticked).

Box 4 Non-authorised third party using ‘any agent’ facility

This option is ticked for agents/warehouse-keepers that are not authorised for CFSP but who have software and wish to make entries in the name of and on behalf of CFSP authorised traders as a Direct Representative (DR). Only one role and location needs to be set up within the software, a separate role and location for each customer is not required.

(Note: Each of the DR’s authorised CFSP customers will require their authorising officer to complete a PA1 with the email route box 2 ticked).
