The importance of the Declaration Unique Consignment Reference (DUCR)

Import declarations for containers with mixed products

For multiple or single containers where each of the Advance Notifications contain mixed commodities and/or varieties that subsequently obtain a green release decision from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) or the Rural Payments Agency (RPA), under the Bulk matching rule a multi-item import declaration can be submitted to Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) - same Declaration Unique Consignment Reference (DUCR) but entering a Part suffix - that reflects on each item of the declaration, the different commodities or varieties.
