Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) export declarations: Inland Declarations Local Clearance Procedure (LCP)

Consignments under LCP may also be travelling in more than one container/load.

It is a requirement that all the goods must be available at the nominated inland location at the ‘goods available from time’ (when legal acceptance takes place on CHIEF).

For LCP cleared goods exiting the EU via another member state no further messaging is required in the UK.

However, LCP goods shipping direct to a third country will require a Goods Arrival Message to be entered to CHIEF.

With the exception of CAP goods for goods split over multiple containers/loads the same facility for multiple arrivals is available.
