Performance and security for your declarations

The advance security declaration is sent through SAFE via conex™ to the British customs system called S&S GB (Safety and Security) between 1 hour before the arrival of the goods and 24 hours prior to their loading at their port of departure, depending on the mode of transport. Our solution guarantees the ENS declaration filing carried out in accordance with the regulations, the transmission of the MRN issued by the customs administration as well as the return of risk analysis messages, if need be, thanks to an interface available 24 hours a day.

Carriers responsible for filing the GMR for import movements from the EU to Great Britain and export movements from Great Britain to the EU

WHAT


Obtaining and presenting a GMR (Goods Movement Reference) in the context of GVMS obligations

HOW


Full Web application according to the volumes processed

The British GVMS teleservice is used to control imports/exports in Great Britain.

The references of the customs, transit and security declarations (S&S GB) of the goods carried by a means of transport must be registered there in order to obtain a GMR (Goods Movement Reference), a real “open sesame” for crossing the British border.

 

The road haulier is liable for this formality and must collect, as early as possible, all the elements related to the goods being transported. He/she must ensure the identification of the vehicle that will cross the border!

 

The GMR must indeed include the registration plates of the actual vehicle and trailer in the event of accompanied RoRo (only one GMR per vehicle, even if the lorry is empty).

HOW TO MAKE A DECLARATION WITH SAFE VIA CONEX AFR

AFR via conex™ takes care of the secure transmission of your data to Japan Customs in compliance with the regulation and the technical specifications in force.

AFR via conex™ covers all the AFR electronic messages between operators and the Japanese customs administration.

 

AFR  via conex™, THE SURE WAY FOR YOUR SECURITY MESSAGES

AFR Advance Filing Report is the electronic security declaration management system for the arrival of goods into the Japanese customs territory. This regulation requires that a certain number of data elements be sent to Japan Customs before departure from the country of provenance. Based on this data, a risk analysis will be performed and Japan Customs will respond with either an approval or a refusal to load, eventually requesting further details.

AFR via conex™ enables operators to communicate with the Japanese administration and respects the World Customs Organisation’s “WCO Data Model” along with other international standards such as UN/CEFACT and ISO.

 

WHAT ARE THE ELECTRONIC MESSAGES?

Japan Customs has defined three separate messages, all of which must be filed. The first, which is based on the House B/L data, must be lodged by the NVOCC who established it (who is usually situated outside of Japan). The second, based on the Master B/L, is lodged by the carrier. The carrier must also send a declaration of the date/time of departure which must be completed after the House B/L and the Master B/L have been sent. There are 5 different kinds of electronic messages returned by customs: Response message - Registration completed message - Information discrepancy message - Risk analysis result.
