The manual describes the completion and presentation of the Customs clearance declarations (CCD) when: (i) Goods are imported; (ii) Removed in transit/bond; (iii) Exported from the local market or ex warehouse; and (iv) When goods are moved between South Africa and the BLNS countries.

(c) The manual combines the attributes of previously separate manuals accommodating import, export and cross-border requirements.
(d) These guidelines take account of both current and future implementing provisions and procedures. Where necessary both current and future ‘coding’ or terminology is used.
(e) The manual provides the description of data elements as required for CCDs using the Customs Procedure Codes (CPC).
