Within the Human Computer Interface (HCI) environment entries with errors may be stored on the system.

Entries stored with errors may be amended or cancelled.

However, once an entry is successfully committed, trade declarants should not amend or cancel unless it is prior to presentation.

After presentation any amendment has to be made under Customs approval.

After departure only C81 amendments may be made.
