clear customs

Launch of Clear Customs Online 2020, preparing businesses for customs changes

Skillnet Ireland has launched the second phase of the ‘Clear Customs’ programme as part of the Government Brexit Readiness Action Plan. The free online training programme developed by Skillnet Ireland will be delivered by CILT Skillnet virtually and is accredited by Carlow Institute of Technology.

By the end of 2020, businesses, trading either with or through the UK, will be subject to a range of new customs formalities and other regulatory requirements. Clear Customs offers free essential online customs training to Customs intermediaries, and to businesses who frequently trade with or through the UK, or to jurisdictions outside the EU Customs Union.

The Clear Customs training programme is targeted at Irish businesses, or others acting on behalf of businesses such as customs intermediaries. Features include an ‘on-the-go’ mobile app upon registration that will help customs agents, intermediaries and affected Irish businesses develop the capacity to deal with additional customs requirements. All businesses that trade with or through the UK need to act now to be prepared.

In order to ensure your business is customs ready, please apply for Clear Customs Online training now.
