The importance of the Declaration Unique Consignment Reference (DUCR)

The Automatic Licence Verification System matching process

Flexibility has been built into the Automatic Licence Verification System (ALVS) matching solution. To ensure that where identical Declaration Unique Consignment References (DUCRs) are entered on multiple Procedure for Electronic Application for Certificates (PEACH) applications, ALVS can handle 'one' to 'many' and 'many' to 'many' relationships between Advance Notifications and Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) import declarations.

ALVS offers two types of matching, known as Single rule matching and Bulk rule matching. ALVS will attempt to match your PEACH consignment lines to CHIEF Import declaration items initially using Single rule matching and then Bulk rule matching.
