Verify a consignment release

The Consignment Release Verification (CRV) service allows compound operators to validate clearance documents. It is a simple and secure way of checking online that goods have been cleared by customs, allowing them to be released.

The service will provide you with one of the following responses:

  • Goods are discharged (including date of discharge).
  • Goods are not discharged.
  • The customs declaration number is not on file.

To access the CRV service you will need:

  • your Revenue Online Service (ROS) login details and a valid ROS digital certificate
  • the customs declaration number of the consignment.

You can access this service through ROS by following these steps:

  • Download the offline CRV application and save it to your computer desktop.
  • Once the application is installed, you can log in to ROS using your digital certificate.
  • Enter the customs declaration number of the consignment you wish to verify.
