ICS2 Release 2: New requirements entering in force

The second release of the European Union’s Import Control System 2 (ICS2) is going live on 1 March 2023.

The European Union is launching the second phase of its Import Control System 2 (ICS2), the new advance cargo information and risk management platform, to protect against security and safety threats from goods entering the EU.

From 1 March 2023, all air carriers, freight forwarders, express couriers, and postal operators involved in the transportation of goods by air to or through the EU1 must provide a complete set of Entry Summary Declaration data on the goods, prior to their arrival at the EU external border.

They must do this through the ICS2 system, which is gradually replacing the EU’s existing Import Control System (ICS) between 2021 and 2024. Air carriers currently filing advance cargo information into the Import Control System (ICS) will fully phase out from that system as soon as they start filing this data into ICS2.
