UKWA leads industry response to Fulfilment House Consultation

UKWA has responded to a Government initiative of vital importance to the logistics industry, announced in the budget last week, eliciting feedback from members and the wider community.

The Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme is a consultation for UK fulfilment houses handling goods imported from outside the European Union (EU).

The Government’s intention is to introduce a new online scheme for UK fulfilment houses from 2018, which will set out standards of due diligence and record-keeping, and introduce penalties for non-compliance.

The consultation invites views from the industry over the forthcoming weeks, up to 30th June.

As the Voice of the Industry and the leading association for the sector, UKWA will be providing a conduit for its members and from the wider logistics community to respond and share views with Government. The Association will also be offering expert advice and guidance as to the potential implications of the proposed scheme, and will be seeking to establish a Customs & Excise Advisory Board.
