Import Customs Clearance Procedures

Recognised by: IICM & ILM

Target Audience

Whether you complete returns or rely on your forwarding agents to complete returns, the Principal Company is the party liable (except in certain defined circumstances).  To avoid the risk of infringements of the EU Customs Code, proper monitoring of returns has now become essential.  This course is a must for operational and supervisory personnel needing to become familiar with Clearance returns.


  • To provide the Importing or Logistics company with a clear understanding of the Customs Clearance Process.  Companies will be guided in devising practical procedures and assessment processes to avoid infringements of the Customs Regulations.
  • To be aware of Irish Revenue’s major concerns regarding data quality on Customs declarations.
  • To understand the new penalties introduced by the Finance Act 2011, where declarants who make incorrect returns may be liable to penalties.
