Client and Supplier registrations

Information about client and supplier registrations; what they are, why they are required and how to submit them. This covers Client and Supplier code registrations, as well as Declarant codes.


Registrations create an identity code for a person, organisation or premises that the border agencies jointly use.

Note: If you are an importer or an exporter, and you use a broker, you don’t have to apply as they will do this for you.

Requesting Registrations

Registrations are submitted using TSW Online.

A TSW User can request registrations for:

  • Themselves
  • An organisation they work for
  • Their organisation’s clients.

Completing a Registration

For assistance in completing registrations, refer to the Fact sheets and Guides.
