Union Customs Code and Manifesting in Maximo


The Challenge 
Since the introduction of the Union Customs Code (UCC) in May 2016, oil and gas operators and HMRC are both trying to get to grips with the changes to how goods are imported from or exported to the UK Continental Shelf.
Considerations
We recently discussed these challenges at the Aberdeen Maximo Oil and Gas user forum.
The basic questions operators face include:

  • How is the industry as a whole interpreting the new framework?
  • Complying with the rules within Maximo
  • How to standardise across operators
  • What UCC info are we tracking?
  • What additional fields do we need on our manifests?
  • What changes do we have to make before May 2019?
  • What about vendors/contractors?
  • Barcode scanning for efficiency
  • What is IBM/BPD doing about it?

Many operators were already making good headway by considering additional Maximo fields and manifesting for compliancy.
Oil & Gas UK were very impressed with the progress within the group and will continue to work with us to provide industry feedback and HMRC guidelines.
How can BPD Zenith’s Manifesting solution help?
The operators in the UK are often using Maximo with BPD’s Manifesting solution for the planning and execution of shipments from and to offshore. This provides a good foundation for the required UCC declarations and report outputs.
HMRC are requesting changes which will potentially require operators to provide additional information on their manifests including:

  • HMRC Tariff/Commodity Codes
  • Unit Price from related PO
  • Total Line Value from related PO
  • Country of Origin
  • Export Licence Received
  • Weight

All of these new fields are currently being added to our Manifesting solution and will be available for 2019.
If you’d like more information on either Union Customs Code or Manifesting, please get in touch to speak to one of our industry experts.
