Master Data

Configure, maintain, and re-use organisational data to automatically populate declarations. CAS Master Data helps increase the accuracy and efficiency of your declaration filing by pulling business data from a single, verified source.  

How it works

There are several data elements required for customs declarations that are not typically housed in your WMS or ERP system. While information such as organisational structure and customs authorisations is mandatory, other elements including item master data and business partners are optional but could significantly increase the efficiency of your daily operations. CAS Master Data allows you to set these up once, then automatically populates them for transactions across all CAS modules. This limits the amount of transactional data that needs to be sent to CAS, speeding up your declarations process and ensuring end-to-end compliance. 

 

On a daily basis, CAS checks item master data for validity of legal content, for example, commodity codes for different jurisdictions, ensuring compliant, complete, and correct customs declarations. CAS can dynamically notify you of tariff measure updates so you can create rules and will also send status updates on validity of commodity codes back to your ERP or WMS system so all data remains uniform.

 

Customs authorisations can also be set up in Master Data and integrated with other modules, such as Declarations and Special Procedures, to optimise automation. CAS checks the authorisations required in order to use simplified procedures, Special Procedures, and authorised locations and automatically applies them to the declaration. 

CAS helps us support our rapidly expanding export operations. We are realising significant improvements in the time-critical export shipment process. With the investment in our Wielsbeke plant, we will increase our capacity by 50%. CAS helps the shipping department keep pace with our growth and realise bottom-line customs duty savings.

Frequently asked questions

Are you curious about how the Master Data module supports classification? We have some answers for you!

Does CAS provide classification content and classification support for data maintenance, e.g., data extracts, initial loads, mass changes, etc?   

With the CAS Master Data module, item classifications can be maintained and updated. CAS Legal Content continually checks the legal validity of the classification codes. Item Master Data can be ingested via CAS APIs, CSV uploads, or entered manually.  

Does CAS automatically update tariff codes (HS codes)? 

Yes, CAS will automatically update the HS codes when TARIC in the EU or other tariff frameworks launch legal updates. 

Does CAS support shipments with more than the maximum number of HS code lines, e.g., are they split into multiple declarations? 

Yes, in this case, shipments will be split with our built-in splitting logic. Once the number of HS codes linked to the shipment exceeds the set limit, the splitting logic will automatically create a second declaration for the same shipment.
