The Customs (Declaration Modification) Regulations 2021 make amendments to retained EU law in the field of customs safety and security procedures (Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446) to tighten controls on high value consignments. It removes the waiver from the obligation to lodge an entry summary declaration or pre-departure declaration for commercial goods of travellers which are above £1500 in value when carried in a goods vehicle. The regulations come into force on 1 July 2021.
