On 11 May, KPMG produced an article warning that on 15 March next year the EU will launch a new customs pre-arrival security and safety regime, supported by a large-scale information system known as ICS2 (Import Control System 2), designed to help establish an integrated EU approach to reinforce customs risk management framework.  It is a is a core delivery requirement of the EU-wide of the Union Customs Code (UCC) and involves a complete overhaul and reform of the existing regime, phasing out and replacing the existing ICS.  It says that all economic operators involved in handling, shipping and transporting of cargo, express or postal consignments will be affected by ICS2, and need to start preparing for the new regime.
