Changes to Ukraine Customs Filing

Ukraine State Customs has introduced electronic Advance Cargo Information (ACI) requirements using XML messaging standards, following the order of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine (No 502) on the 13 August 2020 (Registered under No 1019/ 35302 reference). Its enforcement came into effect on 7 November 2020.

Carriers will be responsible for filing import, transit, and freight remaining on board (FROB) information in advance of the flight arrival at the destination, for both short-haul and long-haul flights. The information must be transmitted at least four hours prior to landing in Ukraine or at wheels-up for short-haul flights (i.e. flights of less than four hours).

What do I need to do to comply?

Carriers will be responsible for filing import, transit, and freight remaining on board (FROB) information with source data Flight Manifest (FFM), Master Air Waybill (FWB), Consolidation Manifest (FHL).

How can CHAMP help?

CHAMP is offering a filing service compliant with Ukraine Customs’ mandatory requirements via our Traxon Global Customs (TGC) platform for our airline and GHA clients.

What do I need to do to connect to TGC?

Carriers only need to send their IATA Cargo-IMP, FWB, FFM, and FHL messages to CHAMP's TGC service on flight departure and then TGC will take care of the rest – connecting to UA Customs (ASMO system)* and filing the correct customs messages (GDA- General Declaration of Arrival) on time using the Cargo-IMP message data supplied by the carrier. You will need to provide flight schedule information to CHAMP - part of the TGC solution offering.

How do I find out more? 

Just contact your local CHAMP Service or Sales Manager, or email marketing@champ.aero for details to sign you up for TGC’s Ukraine Customs filing service.
