In many ways DMS looks similar as AGS. However DMS has extra data elements. DMS offers also the ability to specify details on shipment level in case these are the same for all items. Also the codelists are different from AGS, so the user will have to search again for the correct codes.

The following changes for DMS have been implemented in Scope.


Role NL Customs Partner

For import and export the user can now define several standard values for authorisations and additional references. It are details that can be specified in the declaration itself, but when these are re-occurring for specific Partners, these can be defined in the Partner file and will be automatically takenover into the declaration when that partner is used.

When the partner acts as a declarant in the declaration, its possible to define a standard contact person for this partner. It will be copied into the declaration when this partner is used as declarant.

Role NL Customs Goodslocation

The format of how the goods location is specified in the declaration is changed. There are now several ways to indicate the location. Customs will still use the well-known Postalcode + housenumber in most cases. However for DMS these fields are now split in separate fields: country, postal code and housenumber. In Scope these DMS goods locations will be migrated from the AGS goods location.


A new DMS module/appliance will be visible, next to the existing AGS module. It will have the same look-and-feel as the existing declaration appliances.

DMS Declaration Screenlayouts

The screens of the DMS declaration will be as mentioned below.

DMS Home/Overview

  • There will be an extra filter field to filter on "Incomplete" declarations. The user can see and filter on declarations for which a supplemental declaration still has to be made. Once the supplemental declaration is accepted, the Incomplete indicator will disappear.
  • DMS uses new message codes:
    • DMSCUSDEC = Normal import declaration
    • DMSCUSDEC_INC = Incomplete import declaration
    • DMSCUSDEC_PRE = Advance declaration
    • DMSCUSDEC_SUP = Supplemental declaration
    • DMSCUSDEC_AMD = Declaration with changes
    • DMSIE428  = Acceptance (procedure will gets its MRN)
    • DMSNLTAX = Duty and Taxes (for the UTB/Paymentdetails form)
    • DMSIE429CLE = Cleared/Released
    • DMSIE429ROG = Goods released. Declaration not finalized yet.
    • DMSFUNCREJ = Declaration rejected due to functional errors

Details on declaration level

  • Seperate fields to indicate a pre-declaration and/or a incomplete declaration
  • Authorizations: permits/licenses. F.e. for deferred payment

Details on shipment level

Like in AGS, a DMS declaration will also have only 1 shipment level.

  • Nature of Transaction: This has now different codes than in AGS.
  • VAT Partner: Its possible to define multiple, although the use case is not clear yet.

  • Transports Means: Extra field to indicate the type of identification (like Vesselname or Flightnumber)

  • Codes (Charge Deduction/type) for valuation adjustments are different than in AGS.

  • Previous documents: Its now possible to define these on shipment level in case these are the same for all items.
  • Certificates/Documents in AGS are in DMS split into 3 types:
    • Transport Documents
    • Additional References

  • The commodity code in DMS is now split in separate fields:
    • HScode (8 positions)
    • Tariccode (2 positions)
    • Additional Taric codes (multiple: each 4 positions)
    • National code (multiple: each 4 positions)
    • Strategic Codes (multiple)
    • CUS and UPU codes: used for special purposes like postal shipments

AGS-templates will not be converted to DMS templates. Like in AGS, the user can save DMS declarations as template

Reporting import-/export declarations

With DMS, there will be a separate reporting/statistics appliance for import/export declarations. This will include both the AGS and DMS declarations. This new appliance also supports creation of layouts so the user can define which columns will be in the report.

  • No labels
