INCHP13500 - Appendices: Appendix J: electronic Common Veterinary Entry Document (CVED)

Electronic CVED solution for goods requiring customs clearance based on the use of port inventory systems.

  1. The person responsible for the goods (ie the person making a customs declaration) must lodge a Route 1 Customs declaration with the HMRC National Clearance HUB. This must include:
  • The relevant Document / Certificate code and Status code (listed in Volume 3 Appendix C10 and C11) in Box 44 to show that goods are subject to the veterinary checks regime, and
  • The Summary Declaration Unique Consignment Number in Box 40 (this is the reference point used by the HUB to match Customs declarations with the results of Port Health inspections).
  1. The person responsible for the goods notifies Port Health veterinary staff at the Border Inspection Post (BIP) using Common Veterinary Entry Document (CVED). This pre-notification should be sent to the Border Inspection Post in advance of the arrival of the consignment in accordance with Regulation 17 of the Product of animal origin (POAO) Regulations.
  2. Port Health conducts the required veterinary checks.
  3. If the veterinary checks are satisfactory Port Health will record the results of the inspection on the port inventory system by:

i) quoting the relevant CVED number(s)

ii) stating that Part 2 of the relevant CVED(s) has or have been issued and that relevant inspection fees have been paid, and

iii) advising the customs procedure for which the goods have been authorised.

Steps 4ii and 4iii will be achieved by Port Health quoting the relevant suffixes listed below:

A= Part 2 of the CVED has been issued and the goods covered by it are fit for import and relevant inspection fees have been paid or will be paid (mandatory to comply with Regulation 35 of POAO Reg. SI No. 3388 of 2004.
