HMRC encouraging industry to use facilities at Sevington

by | Sep 19, 2023

Since the UK’s departure from the EU in 2020, the commercial operators at Dover Western Docks (DWD) and Stop 24 have worked with HMRC to provide capacity for the new customs processes.

Now that the Sevington and Holyhead sites are fully operational, the additional capacity is no longer required and HMRC is encouraging trade to start using the facilities at Sevington from now on. Here, they will be able to deal with live animals under a carnet/CITES permit (principally horses or cats/dogs for breeding) and strategic exports/sanctioned goods.

DWD and Stop 24’s customs services now implement a charge at their standard commercial rates, however, facilities will continue to be provided at DWD and Stop 24 for Sevington prohibited vehicles such as dangerous/hazardous goods which must be handled at those locations. These checks will continue to be free of charge.

The following hazardous goods are excluded:
• Class 1 substances and articles (explosives) and class 4.1 substances (polymerizing substances)
• Category I or II nuclear material
• High consequence dangerous goods
• Class 6.1 substances (insecticides)
• Vehicles subject to Special Types General Order (STGO) 2003

To read more information on goods that should continue to attend DWD or Stop 24, please see HMRC’s annex here or please call 01304 211652 or email enquiries@customsinsights.co.uk. We’re more than happy to support with your questions.
