Advanced Cargo Declaration Mandatory as of 1 January

Date: 13/01/2011

As of 1 January 2011, the EU advanced cargo declaration regime will become mandatory. All traders involved in customs transactions and international logistics will have to provide EU customs with security data through electronic declarations, before goods are brought into, or out of, the European Union. In addition, Member States will have to apply a uniform set of EU risk-criteria when carrying out customs controls on goods entering or leaving the EU. The type of security data requested from traders as well as the time limits for submitting advance security data vary according to the means of transport: from 24 hours in advance of loading for deep-sea containerized cargo to 4 hours before arrival or departure for deep-sea bulk cargo and 2 hours before arrival or departure for short sea shipping. Because several Member States risk to face severe delays in the implementation of IT systems, a grace period might be given to traders within which no penalties will be applied. Each individual Member State will arrange this at national level. ECSA, the European shipowners’ association, has prepared a basic explanatory paper on the new regime, which is available from their website below.
