Amending import and export declarations lodged in AEP

Revenue has issued a reminder to all declarants who wish to amend import or export declarations lodged in the Automated Entry Processing (AEP) System.

As previously communicated, the AEP system is now closed. Since 22 May 2023 it is no longer possible to lodge import and export declarations in AEP. Import and export declarations should now be lodged in the Automated Import System (AIS) and Automated Export System (AES) respectively.

From 4 September 2023, it will no longer be possible to make amendments electronically to import or export entries lodged in AEP.

If traders need to make amendments to AEP declarations, Revenue advises that this should be done as soon as possible and well in advance of 4 September.

From 04 September 2023, a manual procedure for completing amendments to import and export declarations lodged in AEP will be in place.

An eCustoms notification will be issued in due course to inform traders of how to make such amendments to AEP declarations after 4 September.
