Detailed guide: Get access to CHIEF for transitional simplified procedures

After Brexit, if you’re making declarations yourself for imported goods using transitional simplified procedures you will need to:

  • buy third party software to make your declarations – this software will work with HMRC’s Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system
  • get a CHIEF badge

You only need to do this if you’re:

If you’re not using transitional simplified procedures and making import declarations yourself – you need to use form C1800.

Getting a CHIEF badge

There are two types of CHIEF badges:

  • a DTI badge (direct trader input) badge – you must have this if you’re importing controlled goods (so you can make both simplified frontier declarations and supplementary declarations)
  • an email badge – you can use this if you’re only making supplementary declarations

DTI badges

To activate your badge you’ll need to provide:

  • your EORI number that starts with GB
  • your business’s name and address
  • the community system provider that issued your badge
  • your DTI badge number

You must use the same business details that you used when you registered for transitional simplified procedures.

Email badge

You’ll need to provide:

  • your EORI number that starts with GB
  • your business’s name and address
  • the email address you want to use for your email badge

You must use the same business details that you used when you registered for transitional simplified procedures.

After you’ve applied

HMRC will send you a confirmation email to let you know when your badge has been activated on CHIEF.
