From Wednesday 18th September 2019 all exporters will be required to provide a minimum of 1 full working days’ notice of the intended date of dispatch of the consignment from the dispatching premises. In practice, this will mean restrictions on the future dates available when submitting your application.
For example, for applications made on Wednesday 4th September, the first available export date will be Friday 6th September. For applications made on Thursday 5th September, the first available export date will be Monday 9th September.Applications will be accepted up until 11.59 pm on the date of application. Please note that the date of export currently required in step 1 of the DECOL application process is regarded as the date of loading and dispatch from the final premises of production and/or storage. It is not the date of shipment from a port in Northern Ireland. Thank you for your cooperation in compliance with these changes.
