London, UK, Monday 18th December 2023: On March 30, 2024, HMRC will formally close the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system for exports, and businesses will need to declare all goods through the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) from this date.

Sharon Greer, ASM general manager says: “The seminar will provide an important update on the final preparations businesses need to make in order to ensure that their final migration to CDS for exports is successful.“

We will also outline and discuss the revised timescale for the migration.”

Robert Windsor, BIFA’s member policy and compliance officer, added: “We strongly recommend attendance at this event which will greatly assist BIFA members and Sequoia ASM users with their migration to the new system.“

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
