Customs and MPI have confirmed 1 July 2018 as the mandatory date for changing to the WCO3 cargo reporting and clearance messages, and using Trade Single Window to submit them.
This means that by 1 July 2018, everyone will have to:
- stop submitting the old EDIFACT entry messages (CUSDEC) and ECI (CUSCAR)
- stop using the old CusWeb website and EDI gateway operated by B2BE NZ
- switch to sending WCO3-format messages via TSW Online or the TSW system-to-system gateway.
