Accompanying Document Types (EMCS / SAAD)
When any commercial shipments of alcohol travel around the EU, they must travel with an 'Accompanying Document'.
The 2 most common types of Accompanying Documents are: an e-AD or an SAAD.
If you need assistance with importing alcohol, then please contact our Imports Team for further information and our charges.
The e-AD is an electronic document, generated by the EMCS computer system, whereas the SAAD is a paper form.
