The new customs decisions system (CDS) will allow for up to 22 different types of customs applications to be managed via the EU trader portal. Access to the CDS, according to an EC release, is more secure than current procedures. Importers in all EU Member States also can use the same portal, with applications being exchanged among all relevant customs authorities.

The new system is one of the first outcomes of the new Union Customs Code (UCC) that was effective 1 May 2016.
