In all other cases where security will be a condition of authorisation, it can be provided by cash deposit or guarantee and must be sufficient to cover the full customs charges potentially due.
NIRU should always be informed to prevent the authorisation holder using the simplified authorisation procedure to bypass the security requirement.
Steps can be taken to ensure that any entry using a simplified authorisation will also subject to security or a local profile could be set against the traders TURN and Simplified authorisation CPCs to stop usage. Where security is required, entry declarations must be accompanied by a valuation statement in order to verify the amount of security provided.
