Community System Provider (CSP)

In the UK, there are five Community System Providers (CSP’s) that are connected to CHIEF. These CSPs operate inventory management systems which are directly connected with hundreds of carriers, transit sheds, and freight forwarders. They record and track the movement of goods within ports and airports. To submit customs declarations, companies need a badge of the relevant CSP. The data they specify in their declarations is verified with the help of the relevant CSP system and then forwarded to CHIEF. AEB works with the CSP badges from Pentant and MCP. The badge required will depend upon the ports where your goods will be imported. AEB will be happy to coordinate the setup of your Pentant badge. For MCP, you will need to provide your own badge details.
