Message exchange

In message exchange the declarant sends XML messages to Customs via Internet. For sending the messages the company must have a certificate granted by Digital and Population Data Services Agency (DVV), subject to a charge.

Customs form “934e – Application for message exchange with Finnish Customs” is used when applying for authorisation to use message exchange. The form is on page About E-services > Message Exchange. The Customs testing official contacts the customer and agrees on testing the system. After approved testing Customs grants authorisation for sending declarations as XML messages.

If the information provider later detects faults in the data submitted, declaration sent as message can be corrected with a correction form.
