To successfully create a GMR, please ensure that you put the correct ENS Movement Reference Number (MRN) and SFD MRN into GVMS, by following these steps:

  1. Enter ENS Safety and Security declaration information
    You should enter the MRN you received in your TSS SFD notification email starting with “21XI”
  2. Add declaration data. This is based on the types of goods you are moving:
    • Controlled goods: For controlled goods, select ‘Customs Declaration’ and provide the MRN number from the TSS SFD notification email beginning with “21GB” – please note you will need to enter the MRN for each consignment of controlled goods you are moving on GVMS before you receive the GMR
    • Non-controlled: For non-controlled goods select ‘EIDR’ and provide the TSS-provided EORI reference beginning with “GB” – only enter the EORI once for all TSS-declared consignments

If you are moving both controlled and non-controlled goods, you should follow both of the above steps.

It is crucial you use the correct references in GVMS as the ferry operator’s confirmation of the GMR acts as the trigger for TSS to begin the supplementary declaration process with the trader.

Please do not use references beginning with ENS, SFD, DEC as these are your email IDs with TSS and are not appropriate for GVMS.
