Information about dangerous, prohibited and restricted goods for all courier and international postal services
While most goods can be delivered without restriction, there are a number of types of goods that are either prohibited or have restrictions on how they may be transported.
Courier services are able to carry a wide range of potentially dangerous goods if they are properly declared and packaged. Mail services have their own set of prohibted and restricted goods.
Here are some useful documents:
Please note that for courier services outside the UK a customs declaration will be needed.
Please also remember that for mail services all non-document items destined to countries outside of the UK require a customs label to be attached.
A CN22 label is required if the value of the goods is under £270: CN22 Label.
A CN23 label is required if the value of the goods is over £270: CN23 Label.
