Regulation (EU) 2022/2399 establishing the EU Single Window Environment for Customs was entered into force in November 2022. This Regulation provides a new legal framework to improve information sharing and digital cooperation between customs authorities and other government authorities (known as partner competent authorities) in charge of enforcing non-customs regulatory formalities at the EU border in areas such as health and safety, environmental protection, food and product safety, agriculture, etc. This, in turn, will allow economic operators to clear certain customs formalities more easily.
The Regulation on the EU Single Window Environment for Customs came into effect in December 2022. This Regulation makes it mandatory for the Member States to join the EU Single Window Environment for Customs initiative by March 2025. EU CSW-CERTEX supports the interconnection between Member States’ customs national import/export/transit systems and several databases of partner DG, hosting several non-customs formalities (such as veterinary, sanitary, environmental, and other formalities). Import of fluorinated greenhouse gases is one of the most complex domains, which is available to the Member States’ customs via EU CSW-CERTEX.
The EU’s new advance cargo information system “Import Control System 2 (ICS2)” ensures the security of European citizens and of the single market by supporting adequate risk-based customs controls. The End-to-End (E2E) testing campaign is designed to execute the ICS2 business workflow in a way that is as close as possible to real business operations, to ensure that the IT system of the economic operators are functioning properly.

Centralised Clearance for Import simplification allows economic operators to lodge one customs declaration at one customs office regardless of where the goods are presented. The economic operator communicates only with the supervising customs office as single point of contact! The digitalisation of the Centralised Clearance for Import concept at EU level is achieved by the EU Centralised Clearance for Import, Phase 1 System, that implements the streamlined communication between the different Customs Offices in different Member States.
