The go live for mandatory Ocean ICS-2 filing has been postponed. The new go live dates are now scheduled for:
For Vessel Operators – June, 3, 2024
For House Bill Filers – December 4, 2024
ICS2 Security Filings will apply to forwarders, and not just carriers, for all cargo moving to and from the European Union. In addition, cargo transported entering or transiting (FROB) the EU, Switzerland, Norway and Northern Ireland must be covered by an ICS2 filing.
The Shift from ICS-1 to ICS-2 and Its Importance
ICS-2 is a crucial advancement over ICS-1 in the EU’s customs and security domain. It’s a revolutionary digital solution for the declaration and control of goods entering the EU. It is designed to offer improved data-driven customs security processes, which are paramount for protecting the EU’s internal market and citizens against potential security and safety threats. By implementing ICS-2, the EU aims to strengthen customs controls and enhance the safety and security of international trade.
