Hi Vernon Rato No a CCG is not normally required for a full UK IP authorisation unless specifically requested by HMRC. See quote below from HMRC guidance. You’ll not need a customs comprehensive guarantee unless we tell you one is required when you apply: I think the conflicting info may come from the requirement for a CCG remaining for IP applications in NI. for full authorisation to put goods into customs special procedures (inward processing, temporary admission, or end use) to operate a temporary storage facility or customs warehouse

Thank you for the clarification. This is what I was seeing as the contradiction.

I would advise contacting the Customs and International trade helpline if you have any other issues with your query.

Imports and exports: general enquiries

Thank you.

Hey there, The requirements for IP authorisation can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the type of intellectual property you're dealing with. Generally, you wouldn't necessarily need a CCG (Collectible Card Game) to apply for IP authorisation. However, if your CCG contains elements that you want to protect (like artwork, game mechanics, or unique terms), then you might need to consider IP protection for those specific aspects. Would be a good idea to consult with a legal expert to get the most accurate advice tailored to your situation. Hope that helps a bit and you explore more from given links

Hi talhariaz5193 Aziz The original question is about customs comprehensive guarantees (CCG) and the customs duty relief Inward processing (IP).
