Revenue confirms new Customs Import System now being used by all relevant businesses

Revenue has confirmed that all relevant businesses have completed their transition to its new customs declaration system, the Automated Import System (AIS).

The new modernised system enables businesses that import goods from outside the EU to meet all the legal requirements of the EU Union Customs Code (UCC). The increased system capacity of AIS means that businesses can be confident that the significantly increased volumes of import declarations, arising mainly as a result of Brexit, can be processed efficiently thus minimising the impacts of the very different trading environment that now exists between Ireland and Great Britain.

Technical information regarding switchover to AIS can be found in eCustoms Notification 48/21 (attached).
