Declaration lists

The service displays four different lists according to declaration state. The lists are in the tabs “Drafts”, “In progress”, “Finished” and “My templates”.

Here are some general instructions on the declaration states. On the subpages, there are separate instructions on using the declaration lists “Drafts”, “Finished” and “My templates” (for the instructions on using the tab “In progress” and on browsing and filtering declarations, see the section “Basic information”).

Declaration states

When the state of a declaration changes, the declaration can move from one list to another. For example, when the goods are released for a procedure, the declaration will move from the list “In progress” to the list “Finished”.

When you want to view the state of a declaration, select the appropriate declaration row. You can also move to the next or the previous column using the Tab key and open the highlighted row by clicking on the Enter key.

The declaration state can be one of the following:

  • Sent = The declaration has been sent from the service and is waiting to be accepted or registered by Customs.
  • Accepted = The declaration has been received, but is still being processed by Customs. If you have lodged a temporary storage declaration, the state of the accepted declaration is “Registered”.
  • Registered = Customs has registered the declaration. If you have pre-lodged a declaration for a customs procedure, the processing of the declaration will continue when the goods are presented. If you have lodged a temporary storage declaration, the state of the accepted declaration is “Registered”. 
  • Rejected = The declaration has been rejected and the processing of the declaration will not continue.
  • Waiting for response = Customs has requested additional information about the declaration or amendment of the declaration or Customs will inspect the declared goods.
  • Waiting for payment = The customs invoice must be paid before the goods are released for free circulation.
  • Notification from Customs = Customs has sent a notification, which may require measures from the customer. The notification may concern e.g. an insufficient guarantee, which requires measures from the customer.
  • Amendment sent = Customs has received the amended declaration.
  • Amendment rejected = The amendment request has been rejected.
  • Released = The goods have been released for the customs procedure (also after amendment). 
  • Invalidated = The declaration has been invalidated.
  • Discharged = The declared goods have left the customs warehouse and a discharge notification has been submitted for the declaration.
  • Released – discharge rejected = The discharge notification has been rejected.
  • Draft = a declaration that you have started completing but that you haven’t sent to Customs yet.
  • Template = The details you filled in have been saved as a template that you can use to complete a new declaration.
  • Refused = Import of the goods has been refused, because the requirements for import aren’t met. For example, the product doesn’t meet the safety requirements.

Finished declarations

Here are some general instructions on using the declaration list “Finished”.

For the general instructions on browsing and filtering declarations, see the section “Basic information”. For more information about the declaration states, see the section “Declaration lists”.

Details displayed on the list 

When you have selected the “Finished”, the finished declarations are displayed as a list, one below the other. The following declaration details are displayed: MRN, state, trader reference, declaration, procedure, declarant, last change and last document. 

When you select a declaration row, the “Summary and submission” page of that declaration opens.

The last column of the declaration has the link “Last document”, with an image of the document and the text “PDF”. If this link is displayed, there is a document attached to the declaration. When you click on this link, the attached document opens in a new tab. If the column is empty, no document has been attached to the declaration.

Creating a template using a finished declaration

You can create a declaration template for yourself of declarations on the “Finished” list. For instructions on creating a new template, see the section “Summary and submission”.

Drafts

In the “Drafts” tab, you can see the declarations that you have started completing but that you haven’t sent to Customs yet or that Customs has rejected.

For the general instructions on browsing and filtering declarations, see the section “Basic information”. For more information about the declaration states, see the section “Declaration lists”.

Saving a draft

When you edit a declaration or create a new declaration, the service will automatically save the details you have entered as a draft.

The information about a created draft is shown at the top of the page above the declaration details.

You can save a declaration draft by clicking on “Close”, while you are completing a declaration. The draft will also be saved if you move from the declaration to the front page by clicking on the “Go to the front page” button with the Customs logo. 

When you close the declaration, a pop-up window opens asking whether you want to save the unfinished declaration as a draft. Choose “OK”, if you want to save the draft.

Continue with a draft

When you wish to continue with a draft, retrieve it from the “Drafts” tab e.g. by filtering. When you have chosen the draft, fill in the missing details in the declaration.

If you want to delete a draft, open it from the “Drafts” list and click on “Delete draft”.

My templates

In the “My templates” tab you can see the finished templates created in your business’s name. Here you will find instructions on how to use a finished template to complete a new declaration and how to edit templates (for instructions on creating a new template, see the section “Summary and submission”).

For the general instructions on browsing and filtering declarations, see the section “Basic information”. For more information about the declaration states, see the section “Declaration lists”.
