With the international trading landscape changing significantly over the past few years, providing the correct customs data is more important than ever.
Electronic Customs Pre-advice Data
It is now mandatory to provide electronic customs pre-advice data and an S10 barcode when you ship abroad. You are also required to provide a CN22 or CN23 and the information electronically in the pre advice you send to us.
Some countries are applying penalties and delaying or returning items that are sent without the required electronic data and physical S10 barcode attached.
Why are we asking you to provide electronic customs data?
Electronic customs data is required to make sure that existing, emerging and future legislative, security and customs requirements overseas are met. The Universal Postal Union (UPU) requests that customs forms are completed accurately and in full. This will include the sender and recipient information and details on the contents within the parcel. Doing so can help enable a more efficient customs clearance process abroad and lead to faster delivery times.
We restrict or prohibit certain items from our network. You are advised to carefully read the restrictions on items like:
- Perfumes or aftershaves
- Nail varnish, polish or gel
Check our prohibitions and restrictions guide.
It’s also your responsibility to check the prohibited and restricted items for your destination country.
