Pre-Boarding Notification (PBN) Solutions

Pre-Boarding Notification (PBN) is an electronic message that is sent to Irish Revenue prior to the arrival of the means of transport to the Irish port.

Thyme-IT offers a Pre-Boarding notification (PBN) solution since February 2022. Customers are able to generate a PBN via the Thyme-IT system and access the new functionality which allows for the import of declaration data from existing AIS Imports and AEP/AES Exports.

Here are some of the benefits of using the Thyme-IT PBN Solution:

  • Avoid duplicated entry of data by importing it from existing declaration.
  • Keep a record of all the PBN IDs (PBN MRNs) generated.
  • Easily track the status of your PBNs.

PBN is used to provide Irish Revenue with details about the goods being shipped, such as their type, quantity, value, and origin. The details of the Master Reference Numbers (MRN’s) of all the customs declarations relating to the goods are held together in one place with a PBN, which allows Customs to carry out risk assessments and inspections before the goods arrive. Pre-Boarding Notifications can also help to speed up the clearance process.

The creation of the PBN is the responsibility of the haulier or freight forwarder, who may delegate this function to the declarant, importer, exporter, clearance agent or logistics company. To ensure compliance with PBN regulations in Ireland, businesses must work closely with their shipping agents or carriers to guarantee that all PBN messages are submitted correctly and on time.
