Presumably you are trying to complete a document sent to you by the party making the customs declaration. If so this will be a commercial document so you can usually check their website or contact them to ask what information they are looking for. A UK import procedure is usually the code for the type of import you are making ie is it a permanent import, a temporary import , is there a specific reason for the import etc. they are listed as codes on the customs declaration service (CDS) data elements DE1/10 and DE1/11 .

As declarations are legal documents we are unable to advise what information to add.

You can check below for guidance or, alternatively, get a customs agent to help.
