Complimentary Webinar: Discover how ICS2 Affects Your Business, May 28, 2024

Date & Time:

May 28, 2024
12:00 pm - 12:45 pm




You are invited to attend this complimentary webinar, for an introduction to ENS filing changes to include ENS filing at the HBL level which will become mandatory in 2024, impacting all stake- holders in the CIFFA community.

Import Control System 2 or ICS2, is a new EU Customs security and safety program designed to enhance the security of the global supply chain and modernize Customs processes, as an upgrade to the current ENS filing requirement.

Its implementation impacts all parties involved in shipping goods to or via (FROB) the EU by ocean and inland waterways road and rail. It requires the electronic submission of detailed goods information prior to their arrival in the EU, facilitating risk analysis for security and safety. 

Trade Tech will present information on:

             ENS implementation dates

             Which countries are included in ENS filing?

             What is different from other filings?

             Up until now, EU ENS was strictly an ocean carrier level filing; changing soon to require freight forwarders to file ENS.

             How should stakeholders prepare for ICS2 / ENS filing?
