This Periodic Customs Declaration Message (CUSPED) permits the transfer of data from a declarant to a customs administration for the purpose of meeting legislative and/or operational requirements in respect of the periodic declaration of goods for import or export.  The message may also be used, for example:

To transmit consignment data from one customs administration to another; to transmit data from a customs authority to other government agencies and/or interested administrations; to transmit data from a declarant to the appropriate data collection agency on the movement of goods between statistical territories.
