FIRST PHASE OF NEW EU IMPORT CONTROL SYSTEM ICS2 COMES INTO OPERATION – AFFECTING POSTAL AND EXPRESS OPERATIONS

On 15 March, the EU advised that, in its first phase, ICS2 will focus on postal and express consignments coming to or through the EU by air, before eventually being applied to all modes of cargo transport.  ICS2 is the new advance cargo risk management platform at the heart of the reform of the EU’s Customs Pre-arrival Safety and Security programme. It will gradually replace the existing import control system in 3 releases to 1 March 2024. The first release of ICS2 will in particular introduce advance cargo information for postal consignments for the first time.
