From 1 January 2022, full customs controls will apply to all goods moving between the EU and Great Britain. If you move goods between the EU and Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales), you must register for the Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) now.
The GVMS system has been designed to enable fast and efficient movement of goods and will be used by many UK ports. From 1 January, if you’re not registered and attempt to move goods through a GVMS port,you won’t be able to:
- board the ferry or shuttle
- cross the EU/GB border
- clear your goods through customs.
