Details about this catalogue item

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.

Course description

This eLearning module will introduce you to the goals of the ICS2 E2E testing, and it will focus on how to perform all the required steps in an E2E testing campaign.

Each Member State can choose whether to execute the E2E testing campaign.
