New customs pre-arrival security and safety programme

The European Union is implementing a new customs pre-arrival security and safety programme, to ensure the security of its citizens and single market. The programme will be underpinned by a large-scale advance cargo information system – Import Control System 2 (ICS2). The programme is one of the main contributors towards establishing an integrated EU approach to reinforce customs risk management under the common risk management framework (CRMF). The first release was on March 15th 2021 for express carriers and European based postal operators and Third-country postal operators shipping to Europe.
