New UK Customs Border Model Confirmed

September 05, 2023

The government have just released details of their new border controls, via their Border Target Operating Model (BOTM), with a phased introduction starting from January 2024.

Following Brexit, new procedures have been in place for moving goods between the EU and UK since 2021. However, some of the more complex controls had been postponed several times, until now.

The BTOM was actually published in April this year as a draft version, but after feedback and consultation with major stakeholders, the final version was confirmed on August 29th.

The beginning of next year is now looking to be a busy time for forwarders and traders.  As well as the phasing in of BOTM, full customs controls for non-qualifying Northern Ireland goods are due to be introduced in January, while the deadline for CDS export declarations to move from CHIEF has been confirmed as March 30th.

Then in April, the implementation of checks on medium risk animal products, plants, plant products and high risk food (and feed) of non-animal origin from the EU are due to be introduced.

The full government BOTM document can be found HERE.
