HMRC has published new guidance to introduce new safety and security declarations that will apply from 1 October 2021 on goods leaving Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).

As per the new guidance, Great Britain is now no longer part of a safety and security zone with the EU. The guidance details how to meet the safety and security requirements for imports and exports.

Safety and security declarations will now apply from:

  • 1 October 2021 on all goods leaving Great Britain: this includes goods moved in roll on roll off (RoRo) vehicles, empty containers, pallets and vehicles moving to the EU under a transport contract; and
  •   1 July 2022 on goods being imported from the EU and other territories to Great Britain that did not require these before 1 January 2021.
