Customs Warehousing Declaration Service
An electronic customs warehousing declaration shall be submitted to Customs for all the goods to be placed under the customs warehousing procedure, and the holder of the warehousing authorisation shall also submit a discharge notification for the goods removed from the customs warehouse. You can submit the declaration using Customs’ e-service. The use of the service is free of charge, and the service is available 24/7. You will find the user instructions and frequently asked questions in the service.
The declaration shall be submitted by an identified user. Users can view and print out the customs warehousing decisions via the service, save a declaration as a draft and choose a previous declaration as a template for a new one. Declarations can be submitted in Finnish, Swedish or English.
Businesses can log in to the service using Suomi.fi identification and authorise another party to transact on their behalf under the Suomi.fi authorisation. The Katso ID can, for the time being, still be used by businesses that cannot use Suomi.fi identification yet. Read more about identification and authorisations

Lodging declarations is made easier if the declarant has found out the commodity codes of the goods in advance, as well as any additional requirements and export restrictions that may apply to these commodity codes. The commodity codes must be entered at the level of at least six digits. You can search for the commodity code e.g. in the Commodity Code Service Fintaric or in the EU TARIC database.
Companies can also lodge customs warehousing declarations in message format from their own data systems. Message exchange is subject to authorisation and the authorisation requires testing of software and connections with Customs.
