Import Control System Rullout Put Back Until December

12 November 2010

The rollout of the Import Control System that was due to take place this month has been put back until 1 December due to: 

“Technical difficulties which meant that we [HMRC] could not ensure the roll-out of a sufficiently robust system for trade use.”

HMRC also advises that an agreement has been reached with the European Commission to implement a “leniency period” from 1 January 2011 to enable a full and proper transition to the new system and enable businesses to fully test their systems using live data without fear of financial penalties if they do not submit Entry Summary Declarations. The Commission will be publishing a text on this issue in the near future.
