There are two types of safety and security declarations: an exit summary declaration (EXS) and an entry summary declaration (ENS).
You do not need to make an entry summary declaration from 1 January 2021 to 30 June 2021 for goods that are imported into Great Britain from the EU or:
- Ceuta and Melilla
- San Marino
- the Vatican City State
- the municipalities of Livigno Campione d’Italia
- the Italian national waters of Lake Lugano, which are between the bank and the political frontier of the area between Ponte Tresa and Porto Ceresio
An entry summary declaration is needed if you are moving into Great Britain, from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, or into Northern Ireland from outside the EU.
An exit summary declaration is needed if you are moving goods outside the UK. From 1 January 2021 safety and security requirements will apply to all movements out of Great Britain, unless the goods are coved under the temporary waiver or are going to Northern Ireland.
From 1 July 2021, you will also be required to submit safety and security import declarations on goods entering Great Britain from the EU.
