HMRC internal manual

Export Procedures

Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) export declarations: Customs Input Entry (CIE)

Export declarations not input direct to CHIEF will be manually keyed into CHIEF by the National Clearance Hub (NCH).

To do so a paper declaration will need to be faxed to the NCH.

The declaration will be accepted and placed on CHIEF.

Legal Acceptance still requires an arrival message.
