The European Union (EU) is implementing changes to its customs processes to increase safety and security for its citizens.
One important change is the new information requirements for shipping documentation, which will take effect on March 1st, 2023. The new requirements are due to the implementation of the Import Control System 2 (ICS2) and will require more detailed information about shipments entering the EU.
The changes to the EU’s customs processes will have a significant impact on businesses that ship to the EU. The new information requirements for shipping documentation will require businesses to provide more detailed information about their shipments, including information about the contents, origin, and destination of the shipment.
This can result in a more complex and time-consuming shipping process, as businesses must gather and provide the necessary information. Additionally, if the required information is not provided, shipments may be held at customs, causing delays and disruptions to the supply chain.
Businesses will need to stay up-to-date on the new requirements and ensure that their shipping processes are in compliance with the latest regulations. This can be a challenge for businesses that are already stretched for time and resources. Businesses that are unprepared for these changes may face significant challenges and disruptions in their supply chain.
