TBG4 Customs

This specification provides the definition of the Periodic customs declaration message (CUSPED) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1.1 Functional definition
This Periodic Customs Declaration Message (CUSPED) permits the transfer of data from a declarant to a customs administration for the purpose of meeting legislative and/or operational requirements in respect of the periodic declaration of goods for import or export. The message may also be used, for
example :

- to transmit consignment data from one customs administration to another;
- to transmit data from a customs authority to other governments agencies and/or interested administrations;
-  to transmit data from a declarant to the appropriate data collection agency on the movement of goods between statistical territories.

1.2 Field of application
The Periodic customs declaration message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.

1.3 Principles
This message incorporates the necessary complementary and/or aggregated data relating to transport, statistical and customs information of a given period.

The design principles adopted allow for referencing one or
more previous simplified Customs declarations pertaining
to the same periodic declaration.
A customs item consists of the grouping of document lines having the same customs characteristics (e.g. tariff
number, declared use, etc.). The message correspondingly permits the use of single or multi-packaging concepts and
their identification to a customs item.
