How Brexit Affects Channel Island Exports
Following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31st December 2020, the UK logistics industry has been faced with a variety of challenges including revised EU shipping procedures and new customs regulations.
As the Channel Islands are not part of the EU, Brexit has had no direct impact on the Channel Island’s trade in goods. Any goods that are shipped from the UK and cleared will not require any additional paperwork post-Brexit, as the Channel Islands are Crown Dependencies and non-EU. The below states advice from Ferryspeed’s dedicated Customs team.
IMPORTS DIRECT FROM EU TO GSY/JSY [VIA ST MALO] – Import Safety & Security declaration required on UK system ICS
An EORI number will be required if the importer in the Channel Islands is responsible for submitting the ESD - the carrier’s responsibility is ensuring the declaration through ICS has been lodged.
EXPORTS DIRECT TO EU FROM JSY/GSY [VIA ST MALO] – Export Safety & Security declaration required
An EORI number will be required if the exporter in the Channel Islands is responsible for submitting the ESD. It’s the carrier’s responsibility to ensure the declaration through ESD through ICS has been lodged.
If the goods are travelling under TRANSIT AND NCTS, the Safety & Security declaration will be combined within the NCTS.
Imports INDIRECT to GSY / JSY Via the UK under NCTS
An EORI number will be required for NCTS or importing Zero rated goods.
Export INDIRECT to EU Via the UK under NCTS T1
An EORI number will be required to use the Common Transit or National Transit Procedures.
